i have this liteon drive and am struggling to work out if it is good or not. i was thinking of changing it to the sohw-1633s drive, but read that the 16x dvd burning is rubbish. so does this mean im better off with the 832s, or will new firmware be available for the 1633s to vastly improve its performance over the 832s.

i will be using this drive mostly to rip cds and dvds and bypass copy protections. is the 832s good at doing this, or is the 1633s significantly better?

also is there any firware etc to improve reading and writing speeds for 832s, and are they 100% safe from being dodgy?

thank you for your help
