I'm buying a new optical drive & would like a suggestion or 2, I've narrowed my selections to these 4:

Samsung 48x24x48 CDRW
AOpen 48x 24x 48x +16 DVD/CDR Combo
LG 48x24x48 +16 CDR/W - DVD Combo
Samsung 48x24x48x16 CDRW & DVD Combo

Does anyone know which would perform best & which is quietest? What spec. should I look for when finding out how loud/quiet the drive is?

When reading a drive's specs, how do I determine how loud/quiet its revving up/down/spinning is? I know this is measured in dB, but is a low negative number quieter than the hi positive number?

Thanks for the help, I'm leaning towards the LiteOn or Samsung; depends on the prices I find.
