i would like to know why.
do you have the Toshiba drive too? which model?
No , i have not . Toshiba drives provide quiet operation , best protection copying ( perhaps i have said it was Lite-On in my test , if i have done it i was wrong and it was a big fault , i ll check it , it is difficult for me now to check and update my website ) , perhaps cd audio ripping is limited ( i don't know and i don't have time to check it ) .

( i assume it remains true when comparing 166S and SD-M1712 ) .
And yes for some tests i trust CDR-INFO .
Yes i have changed my mind about Toshiba ( on some tests it is not said that Pioneer drives are kept quiet by using a software utility limiting the drive speed for example ) .
