I'm looking into simplifying my drive arrangement, and I currently have the following drives installed:
Pioneer DVD-305S (DVD-ROM)
Plextor 40TSI (CD-ROM)
NEC 2500A (DVD+/-RW)
also at my disposal is an NEC 5800C (DVD-ROM)
How do the 5800C, 2500A, and the 305S compare at DVD ripping?
How do the 40TSI, the 2500A, and the 5800C compare at CD ripping?
I'm mainly concerned about accuracy, and the ability to read "well used" media as a CD binder I used to have make a bunch of my CDs nearly unreadable, and made some flat out unreadable.
I've been having a hard time finding a good place that can compare these drives as the NEC drives don't get very much review action. They are nice and quiet, which is a plus.
