I'm looking at getting one of these (AOpen DVD 1648) to replace an LG gdr8163b, the driving reason being that the LG is a REALLY slow reader.
Ripping CD's takes forever and DVD's start reading at X3 which as a bit of a bugger when you are tring to copy at X4 !! Read the threads in here and it seems there is nothing that can be done, so out it goes..
So I guess my main question is will the 1648 out perform the gdr8163b on the ripping and copying stakes ??
