10 DVD Burners: 16x and Dual-Layer - or Nothing!

DVD Reading

The LG GSA-4160B showed the best results for DVD reading and transfer rate, with a speed slightly above specifications at the end of a disk (16.16x). For access time, the LG came close, but the Samsung won here again, with a random access time of only 90 ms! The differences are more evident with video extraction. Once again, the Samsung showed its high-speed reading capabilities. But what about writing?

    Please report noise levels in optical drive reviews. This is a big factor in which drive to buy for some people. My current DVD burner sounds like a jet engine for 5 minutes after putting a disc in.
