    Building a (non hcpc) pc for a friend, and ebuyer had run out of the ubiquitous Liteon 163, so I bought a Sony1621 retail box with PowerDVD (v3, sadly) for £31.39 + VAT.

    Well, it's pretty good - quiet, even when spinning at full revs, easily altered to RPC1, even has a nice little foam surround inside the drawer front to keep dust out (I presume - maybe helps with vibration reduction). For those modders out there, the volume wheel and headphone socket are both black, so if you're spraying your drive, this may make things easier!!

    I briefly compared it to my Liteon, but not in a quiet environment, so difficult to say how it ranks, but seems OK to me!
