Xbox 360 given the silent treatment
Xbox 360 owners know how noisy their console can be – whirring away like some sort of possessed piece of equipment. But new reports suggest that a newer and quieter type of drive will be used inside the console.
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 Microsoft, and even speeds up and smooths out load times.
