Are these any good?

Hi i was reading that some drives are better at backing up than others, so…are these any good(they’re what i have).

Writer:
SONY DVD RW DW-Q31A
which i flashed to a
LITE-ON DVDRW SHW-16H5S

Reader:
Sony DDU1615 (not flashed it, but its a rebadged LiteOn SOHD-16P9S)

Both are upto date, are these good at backing up games and dvd’s?
Whats your opinion?
How would you rate them against other drives.
Thanks.

Bump!

LiteOn drives are very good a backing up games and movies. The Sony is a slow ripper by default but it can be patched to allow it to rip reliably up to 12x for DL and 16x for ±R. :wink:

My LiteOn is quite slow at ripping DVD’s but fast with CD’s.

It has very good error correction and rips scratched audio CD’s with ease (EAC) with no audible pops/clicks.
Whilst slow with official firmware,it also has very good DVD error correction,can handle layer breaks well and rips scratched/defective discs very well 99% of the time. :wink:
