    CD-Rom Drive Brand Names???

    My CD-Rom is dying. It refuses to read some disc and get errors reading others. I can use the disc in another system on my network and access and read from it fine. So I know it is the drive that is going bad. I need to replace it. 52x and 56x CD-Roms are all within a coulpe dollars of each other so cost is not a factor. Out of the following drive which do you find to be a quality drive, which can take high FSB better, and which is quietest.

    LG (GOLDSTAR) 52X IDE INTERNAL CD-ROM, MODEL# GCR-8521B
    Samsung SC152LEB 52X CD-ROM
    Artec 56x IDE CDROM Model 94E-0034
    Lite On 52x Cd Rom - Model LTN-526
    CYBERDRIVE 56X MAX EIDE INTERNAL CD-ROM DRIVE
    AOPEN CD-952E 52x CDROM
    ASUS CD-S520 CD-ROM DRIVE

    Thnx
    How come whenever I have a 50/50 chance I'm wrong 80% of the time?

    LG, Lite On, and Asus are probably the three best bets of those. Don't know specifically about handling it, but those are the three best brands in the group.
    Cameron: Are you crazy, House? You can't divide by zero! The server is almost overloaded as it is, despite us having pumped it full of matrices!
    Foreman: He was right about that infinite sequence last week... maybe we didn't consider this could be an asymptotic problem.
    House: This is the only way! Sometimes solutions are NP complete and there's nothing anyone can do about it! Foreman, sneak into the physics department and reroute their servers to ours, we need the extra processors if we don't want this equation to go quadratic on us. Chase, patch the memory leak and install Matlab 9.3.
    Chase: Shouldn't we be using Mathematica for potentially asymptotic functions?
    House: When I want your opinion, I'll do an affine transformation to get it. I'm off to see Cuddy. Those parabolic eigenvalues of hers must be good for something.

    Just to let everyone know, I went with the ASUS. I don't know how well it handles high FSB because my NIC limits me to 106. But I can tell you that it is extremely quiet. Wait a min. Let me rephase that. It is extremely quiet. I can't hear it over the case fans.
