Did you mean me ?
c't does reading test similar to those done here- transfer rate, error correction for damaged discs, seek times etc. In addition, they check how a drive copes with 8 flavours of CD audio protection.
As far as error correction goes, the LG GSA-4163B did well in their test (2/2005)
: 80.6% for DVD-R is average and 87.6% for DVD-9 was topped only by the Sony DRU-710A. It also read 7 of 8 protected audio CDs, but that can be firmware-dependent.
Of all drives c't has tested in the last months, the Pioneer DVR-109
had the best error correction properties for reading damaged DVDs.
