hi and thanks for taking the time to read my post
I'm in the process of ripping and archving all my audio cd collection using EAC + Flac. I've been doing this using the dvd writer that comes with my computer, but I find it slow, plus at times I notice it swaps the stereo channels for some ripped cds.
Therefore I'm looking for the best current SATA internal DVD unit to be used almost exclusively for the purpose of ripping audio. I do close to zero dvd/cd burning, so that would not be one of the main parameters. What I'm interested in is
-decent ripping speed in secure mode
-good C2 implementation
-availability in the UK
Amazon currently sells brands like Liteon, Samsung, LG and Optiarc. I would avoid the Plextors because I read they're overpriced rebundled drives. Any suggestions?
Thanks a lot!
