I'm going to be receiving a nec 2500a and I already have a 52246S drive. I'm trying to decide on whether to get a HD166s drive for $30 or the 5232k(refurb) to just replace my 52246s for $37, so I don't have an extra bay used up and extra power being sucked from my PSU. I'm more concerned on the dvd read performance of the drives. If the 5232k performs just as well then more power to my pc. =D
Can the 5232k perform just as well as the HD166s when it comes to dvd ripping? Also, how does the 5232k compare to the HD166s in reading different dvd media. Thanks.
