Yep mine sounds like a jet engine but i dont mind..Just happy to be in the 360 experience since i am poor and dont have a morgage payment to blow on a crapstation 3:):lol:
i've got the middle one, but the best ones probably really recent, cos i only got my 360 3 months ago. The noise doesn't bother me, and at least it's not the worst one. :P
I've got the original one, Toshiba-Samsung. It might be loud, but once I get into the game I'm playing I don't notice the noise. And playing DVD's is much quieter than playing the games, so that's also a plus. No big deal to me.
The whiz kids over at Xbox-Scene have posted a handy-dandy spotter's guide which lets you determine--at a glance!--if you have one of the new, ultra-quiet BenQ DVD drives in your 360. If not, sucks to be you: --TOR
