It's no secret that the Xbox 360's disc drive is hella noisy, by far outstripping any incidental fan noises that might be going on inside that white box. Luckily, help is on the way -- sort of. Microsoft has started building its 360s with a new DVD drive manufactured by BenQ-LiteOn-Philips, the BenQ VAD6038, which purportedly runs "super-quiet" in comparison to the previous two drives used by MS, and even speeds up and smooths out load times.

I wonder how we'll be able to tell which versions have it? I've been thinking about getting another 360, but I'm still considering just waiting until the supposed new version comes out later this year.

ABOUT DAMN TIME THEY'RE DOING THIS.

Why am I yelling? If I don't speak up, you won't be able to hear me over the current noise of my 360!

Good news, but unfortunately it won't help me unless I decide to replace my 360 in the future.
