Hmmm, I’ve gotta revise my statement above about the Sammy 223F being a bit on the slow side in Secure Mode.
I was going by the time it took with my Dell TS-H653F (which is just a Sammy 223F with Dell firmware)…when I tested the “proper” 223F with the same CD (~50 mins in length) in Secure Mode, it knocked spots off the Dell one in terms of speed.
I had to triple-check that it was using Secure Mode, it was that much faster
And yeah, Optiarcs are nice and fast too …I often use my 5170S - but only as long as the disc’s in pristine condition.
Thanks for the comparisons!
