I recently purchased the above dvd rom in an effort to speed up my rip times. I did not do a topic search on this forum to see which drive was best for ripping until after I made the purchase. I am getting 15 minute rips on average. I still have time to return the drive, and have seen on many posts that the liteon 16x drive would have been a better choice. Will the liteon rip faster than 15 minutes, or does anyone know of a faster dvd rom for ripping?

15 minutes is a great rip time. Most people are getting much longer rip times. Many people are happy to get 30 minutes rips.

The Mad Dog and the Lite-On are excellant drives IMHO.

I chose the Sony 16x DVD-ROM simply because it can playback all four formats, and I believe the Mad Dog and Lite-On only handle -rw/r.

My lite-on handles everything, and for the 34.00, best deal I ever got.

Mine is the Lite-On black 166 model which I got from DELL, but I don't see it anymore on there site. I see the white model everywhere still in the 33.-39.00 range.

Thanks for all of the input everyone. Not sure weather getting my rip times down by 4 or so minutes is worth the hassel of taking the drive back.
