Sorry for the funny title, I have been reading around here for a while now, and I am looking for a good drive for reading / creating iso’s… I currently have a Plextor PX716a that is a great drive, but looking for something that does a better / faster job of reading dvd’s. If this same drive is a good burner that is fine, but my main concern is a fast accurate read, and which drives do the best of reading “not so ideal” media?
standard 5.25" internal drive bay
standard ATA/100/133 IDE interface, could use sata also on one of the machines, but the other one would require IDE.
I have been looking around, but having a hard time deciding which one, will probably also be ordering from newegg as I do not have much to chose from locally, so the selection is pretty large.
