Default Five DVD-ROM Drives Roundup

If you have limited budget for your computer system and would like to save some by getting a regular DVD-ROM drive instead of a burner, then this roundup is for you. Five solutions from ASUS, Sony, Toshiba and Plextor under X-bitís magnifying glass!

To me, they all perform close to each other. With 4 different brands I am using, the key element is how well the drive reacts to the type/brand of DVD. I have found BenQ writes at 16X using 8X DVD while Samsung and NEC write at 8X.

Then, I found my Toshiba has Samsung name on the drive - Toshiba Samsung Storage Technology Corporation.
