hi there
well iam from india
i subscriber of a technology magazine called DIGIT
now they are giving the readers a DVD DRIVE offer
they will be giving us the folowing drives at a discounted rate

LITEON XJ-HD166S for Rs. 1350 i.e 30$
SAMSUNG SD-616E for Rs 1400 i.e 31$
now the price is not at all the factor

well my question is
which one in your view would be a good drive ?
my usage would be to watch movies and use it as a normal Drive
and would be also venturing into ripping movies cause i have a CD writer
another fact is that the liteon drive sipports Dual Format DVD's while the samsung doesnt
is this format Necessary
so please do help
thanks in advance

I haven't used the 166, but the Lite-On 167 is great. I'd highly recomend that you get the 166.

Hi Atul.

Mostly everybody here will say yes to the Lite-On.

I´m really not a Liteon-Fan, but the Lite is definitive the better and faster drive (except with CD-RW, max. Speed 24x). If you don´t care about a noisy drive, get the Lite.
