Summary: I recently installed this drive into my home machine to give me a way to make copies of my favourite films in high resolution; I wanted the drive to be quiet, fast and functional, three out of three! This is the fastest BD drive I could find, and the reported speeds are accurate. The drive detects when you're playing media and reduces the read speed to make it quieter when watching films on my PC, which is a great touch.
Summary: For some reason upon starting this up it was hella loud, with a screeching noise. not sure if this was because its brand new but i left it for 5mins and it didnt go away, the noise changed depending on what type of disc was in.
