I recently picked up a lite on drive (SOHW - 1693S06C)16X dual layer, dual format. I put it in a Kingswin external enclosure with usb and firewire. I paid about $129 for both (drive and enclosure). I tried to rip a dvd to my PC the other night, and I get pretty slow read speads, like 4-6x. Why is this? Is this a good dvd burner to stick with? I dont want to have to upgrade again for a while. How does this specific drive rank among other drives? The guy at the shop told me it is the latest revision that came out this month.
thanks in advance
