Yes, I popped it in last night. Truth be told, I couldn't tell a difference in the noise from either. Both of them caused the machine to vibrate, so I'm thinking that's normal. WHen I get home from work this evening I'm going to put the Sony drive in and install a few apps (I installed XP and Office 2k3 with the Phillips drive, which is where I really noticed the noise.) The only thing I don't like is that the Sony drive is a refurb.
I'll report more this evening on it.

I know the pics I took don't show it very well, but that's EXACTLY how my screen looks!
Which is why I want them to send me a replacement. Hopefully the next one I get is actually a DECENT replacement.
Also, I think the Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG is not as good as the Dell TM1450 in my i8500. With the Intel card, I have the connection issues (LINK to thread
) and it seems to disconnect me from my remote control sessions more frequently. I am SERIOUSLY considering swapping the Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG for the Dell TM1450 in my i8500. I just wish I could figure out which is better for battery life (Post #7 in this thread
