Hi all, I know there are other (older) posts on this, but I was hoping for "the latest" opinion on this one. I was all set on getting a Samsung Spinpoint until I read that newer drives are noisier - now I don't know what to get? I really have any idea on the DVD-Rom. Is it not possible to get a DVD-Rom drive that's as quiet as a standalone player? At the moment I always copy the movie to my HDD before watching just so I don't have to put up with the noise of the drive. Any advice/comments welcomed (please). Thanks in advance. Rob.
