    I'll go with Lite-On as well. I bet if you look at the info lable on all those listed you'l find them all from the same maker, probably NEC.

    O.K. seeing as gentle humour is not your strong point, don't by any on your list buy a Lite-on.

    I have a Pioneer DVD 121.................. it's the NOISIEST THING IN MY PC CASE WHEN IT RUNS A DISC UP. SORRY FOR THE SHOUTING BUT I CAN'T HEAR MYSELF THINK OVER THE NOISE!!!!

    Go for a Lite-on or a Plextor. I know they're not on your list, but they should be!

    Oh...... you get what you pay for.

    I've had one of all those makes 'cept the Asus. Would not get a BTC again but MSI & Artec were fine.

    Artec also sell facias on their own so you can change it to match your PC.

    Would recommend Lite-on for DVD-ROM or LG and Pioneer for DVDWriters.

    Lite-on for vfm and quality. After that LG are ok, Plextor the best, but not worth the mark up. Get a 9600XT VGA card. Going at a reasonable price at the moment.

    VFM = Value For Money

    Personally I own an MSI DVD/CDRW combo drive and its silent in DVD playback, not a whisper.

    But for lite-on or plextor are the only others I'd give a nod too.

    Does the 9500 have a fan? If so I'd stick with the 9600 for HTPC use.

    Cheers
