Hello to everyone..
It is very hard to me to search about specifications for each dvd-rom and take info. I believe that its persons experience counts more.
I had a pioneer 106s if i remember well 1rst revision and it couldn't read as good as i expect. I had never saw this at speeds more than 8x. Usually speeds were from 1-4x. When i used it for dvd movies usually stucted and i had to eject the dvd and insert again to play.. And then one day i took it and i test it to a crash test with the wall.. Results: pieces!
Then i bought a samsung SD616Q. Everybody was telling to me that it was the best.. They didn't mention something that i discovered: When it has to read DvD - it starts at 2x and reaches the 6x speed.. This is very very bad for on the fly recording at 4x with my ltn SOHO812S.
As i still can return that back i need some advise about what to buy. I only want to burn on-the-fly dvd's at 4x or later 8x...
Sorry about my english, i am greek...
