    if your just lookin for a DVD rom drive and want quality you can go for any name brand really, I personally like creative's and sony, but when it comes down to DVD rom's they are most the same. faster speeds on DVD rom's don't matter much unless you are using them to read data from DVD's (which there are few of) othern then that the only thing the rated speed is good for is faster speed = faster fastforward in movies heeh

    Other then that there isn't much in the way of DVD features that one drive has and another doesn't

    hope that helps :)
