Advices on LG DRD-8160B DVD

I am about to buy a PC DVD reader. I have heard about Toshiba and Lite-On but these drives are hard to find in my town…
I am currently focused on the LG DRD-8160B model, which is available and affordable…

I would like to have your advices on reliability, speed, noise and features of this drive. Of course, it will be used with CloneCD for backups, and for reading DVD and CD…

Another question : is this drive RPC locked ?

Your suggestions are welcome !

Yet another question : is this drive able to read subchannel (audio + data) ?

You could order the LiteOn and have it shipped to you!

:cool:

I finally found a LG DRD-8160B.
It’s a very good DVD reader.

It can read subchannel, extract audio at 13X, isn’t as noisy as my “old” 32X CD-reader and is very very fast…

I would recommend this drive to anyone…

And this drive is very affordable…
