It seems there are a lot of people asking about what drive they should get and why; I myself even have. One problem for me is I have only owned a few drives three cd-burners, two dvd burners and a dvd-rom. But Dee-27 eats and sleeps optical drives!!! Here is the list of what she uses:
NEC Drives - NEC ND-4550A : NEC ND-3540A : NEC ND-3520AW : NEC ND-3500A
Other Drives - BenQ DW1640 : 2X BenQ DW1620A : Plextor PX-716A : LG GSA-4163B
Liteon SOHW-1653S : Liteon SHW-1635S : Pioneer DVR-110D : Samsung SE-W164C
So my question is what drive do you like best? Use the most? And is there any particular drive you use only for specific tasks, reading/ripping/writing/ and so forth.
If you could keep only one drive what would it be?
Thanks for your devotion to helping optical drive gurus!
