Regular movie playback is a simple task for any DVD-ROM. What are you looking for, a quiet DVD-ROM, a tolerant DVD-ROM if scratches come about on a disc, by stating a specifi goal(s) you can get more helpful feedback from members here on the baord.

For movie playback alone, if a noisy DVD-ROM isn’t an issue, I would get a generic name brand and save as much money as I can by buying the cheapest thing out there.

I currently own a Lite-on, and its a very tolerable reader, scratches and such. Toshiba’s for example a very picky readers.

The Lite-on however from time to time spins up some and is considered low-moderately noisy.

Please expand in description on what you are looking for.

If you can (still) get it go for: Lite-On 166S! :iagree:

Or even better, its replacement, the LiteOn 167, which is reputed to have better error and jitter correction.
