hi all, I want to get a new DVD-Rom (I hate my old Asus E612 cause it has very slow spin-up times
and can not read DVDs anymore
) but not sure to which thing?. I think the new one should have a good media compatibility, must fast when reading DVDs and CDs, good DAE results, and also region-free firmware upgradable without any problem.
-Teac 516E (does it have a region free firmware?) not EA so it has 512KB
-Toshiba 1712 (is it good enough for comparing with Teac? and region-free firmware?)
-Liteon 166S (some people said it's very loud)
or any suggestions? except for Asus please.
