I'm looking to buy A DVD ROM @ 8x/40x. Any suggestions? I've looked at OEM panasonic and pioneer models. More about : buying dvd rom suggestions Anonymous a b G Storage November 15, 2000 1:24:43 AM 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). Anonymous a b G Storage November 15, 2000 9:40:35 AM See www.cdspeed2000.com 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 cdspeed2000.com, i just think it is a great site).

But this drive can be made "region-free" ! Arrow December 11, 2000 10:27:51 PM Taka a browse at the Toshibas.

Reliable and comparable to other drives. Also fairly easy to set up. Good luck! -=-Sean-=- Can't find your answer ? Ask !
