M1612 ( Toshiba older model ) has his DVD VIDEO rip speed limited to 4X/5X max . I assume it's also M1712's case . 106S rips DVD VIDEO at 11X max . There is RPC-1 ( RPC1 = multizone ) Firmwares for both Pioneer and Toshiba DVD ROM drives . Also Pioneer drives are somewhat noisy but a Pioneer software utility allows you to lower the noise by lowering the drive speed .
Toshiba DVD ROM drives are very quiet .

In this website you can find all RPC-1 Firmwares available for DVD ROM drives :


Also you can read other reviews at www.cdrinfo.com ( i assume you have already read some reviews at www.cdrlabs.com ) .
