I don't have the money to compare statistically for you, but I can tell you, that for the money, you will find non better.

Now. Personal experience: I open the side panel... *WOOOSH* comes the draft.

I cut a strip of the tape to fit the entire front face of just the tray. This tape is so strong it's unbelievable. No worries at all about it coming off unless you want it to. The thickness of the tape and the rulers puts the grill flush with the rest of them. The tape has enough give that you can press the lower right corner of the grill in and it makes contact with the drive button to open it. Reach around and press the button to close like normal. Because I made mine a little thicker and cut out the extra sides I went to a local Ace Hardware store and got the smallest rubber grommets that I could find. They are about the same size as the drive button and I glued it on to the button so I didn't have to press the face plate in that far to get the drive open.

There is a mod to hookup an actual button to the exterior of the drive, most mount it up top by the rest of the connections. It is a rather easy mod but beware that it will definitely void your drive warranty because you have to open the casing and most have some sort of a security sticker that will ruin if you mess with it. Search the forums here, there are a couple different guides to doing it. I will do it at a later date but what I have done for now works perfecly fine for me.

Thanks mate... actually the only problem i have now is that the 3M double sided tape is so bloody expensive here, and i cant even find a single shop (carpenter or so) that will have a small strip just for me to apply to the tray... im getting seriously pissed off...

I already did the button mod, opened the DVD drive, linked everything and it works great, just need to put that front panel on it to make it look nice... and its seriously the only thing thats preventing me from showing my case in the thread.... grrrrr:swearing:

I wanted to screw the mask onto the DVD door with small screws, but seriously i cant find such a small screw , its like 1,5mm in diameter or so...

I'll figure something out, just need to get my hands on that tape

P.S. Any of you guys used some sound dampening material? How did that work out for you?
