This review is from: SAMSUNG 24X Internal DVD Writer SATA Model-SH-224GB/BSBE
Pros: Very Quiet
Cons: Extremely slow rips
Other Thoughts: Had High hopes for this drive but I can't recommend ti for ripping cds.
I use an ODD mainly to rip audio cds.
This drive was extremely slow when ripping cds.
It would not even read some cds that ripped fine in another manufacture's drive.
It may be that the slow speed keeps it quiet and makes the drive last longer but It just does not compare to the other drives I have used when ripping.
I did burn a disk to try it out and it burned quickly and quietly.
This review is from: LG Internal 24x Super Multi with M-DISC Support SATA Model GH24NSC0B
Pros: No White Logo on this one
Nice Black,Looks good with my case
Good and consistant rip speeds
Cons: A little noisy
Some noise on boot
Experience has been that these last only a couple of years
Other Thoughts: After trying 3 Samsungs I went back to LG
I primarily use this drive to rip cds which it does well.
Not the quietest but not that loud.
I have replaced a few off these. they seem to last a couple of years but are only 13 bucks on sale and when they are working they do a good job.
Pros: It was operational
Cons: Noisy read write
Other Thoughts: I have always used WD Blue and have never had an issue. I have replaced old WD Blues because of size but not because of failure.
This Drive apparently is a re branded WD Green. It sounded like the old drives 20 years ago when it was working. I
returned it and the replacement is working fine so far. This is a slower 5400rpm drive which I don't mind as it is being used for a storage drive. In my case WD has sullied the WD blue brand by including these drives.
