I’m searching for a new DVD-Rom.
First I tried to buy an AOpen 1648 AAP, but the drive is no longer available in the stores and online-stores in germany.
Now I’m not sure which drive to buy?
The following drives are more or less available at the local stores in my area:
- Toshiba SD-M1912
- LiteOn 166S
- Teac DV-516D
- Plextor PX-116A
- SONY DDU-1622
- evtl. Asus E-616
The following points are important for me:
- quiet Operation while watching DVDs
- good error correction
- good media compatibility (DVD-Ram not needed)
- not the slowest Drive
- it should also be a well performing a CD-Rom Drive
The ability to read copy protected audio CDs would be nice but not neccessary.
There was a review of DVD-Rom Drives in a famous german hardware magazine (c’t). But the only thing I kept in mind was that the AOpen drive was rated best. I can’t remember the second and third placed drives. Could anybody scan the article and send it to me?
What would you advice?
Which drive should I buy?
