  1. Toshiba SD-M1401 SCSI DVD is good but expansive (aroun $140 maybe a little less).
    My choice and advice go for Pioneer DVD-115 16x/10x (around $95).
  2. See because i have found some good info there too. The Aopen DVD 1640 (Pro) or the Pioneer 105S look great!

    (PS, i have nothing to do with, i just think it is a great site).
  3. I personally like the creative encore DVD drives. they work great. plus they come with decoder cards.

  4. update!

    i have an Pioneer 105S and it is rather fast, but not as fast as cdspeed2000 said..
    it is about 8x instead of 11x...

    and also look at the noise the drive makes and the way it handles scratched disks and audio cd's...

    the pioneer is rather loud when playing DVD's. But this drive can be made "region-free" !
  5. Taka a browse at the Toshibas.

  6. I may be trendy but I like the creatives. Reliable and comparable to other drives. Also fairly easy to set up.

    Good luck!
