I'm going to buy a CD-ROM drive for use with EAC.
What would you get and why? It could be a DVD, CD, CD-RW, DVD-/+ whatever.

I'm currently using a Pioneer 105 DVD-R.

Cheers.

The german c't magazine just published a roundup of drives for the purpose of data/audio-ripping and -rescue. They even did a listening test on how big of a scratch a drive can handle without introducing clicks or similar artifacts.

Some results for DVD-ROM drives: (--) = very poor, (-) = poor, (O) = average, (+) = good, (++) = very good


Aopen DVD1648/AAP Pro:
Error correction for Scratches: (--), Error correction for Jitter: (++), Error correction for Audio CDs: (O), Reading Copy-protected Audio CDs: (O)

LG GDR-8163B:
Scratches: (-), Jitter: (+), Audio CDs: (O), Copy-protected Audio CDs: (+)

LiteOn 16P9S:
Scratches: (++), Jitter: (++), Audio CDs: (++), Copy-protected Audio CDs: (O)

Plextor PX-130A:
Scratches: (++), Jitter: (+), Audio CDs: (O), Copy-protected Audio CDs: (O)

TEAC DC-516G:
Scratches: (++), Jitter: (+), Audio CDs: (++), Copy-protected Audio CDs: (+)

Toshiba SD-M1912:
Scratches: (+), Jitter: (+), Audio CDs: (--), Copy-protected Audio CDs: (O)



..and some for DVD-RW drives:

BenQ 1640:
Scratches: (++), Jitter: (+), Audio CDs: (++), Copy-protected Audio CDs: (-)

LiteOn 1693S:
Scratches: (O), Jitter: (+), Audio CDs: (++), Copy-protected Audio CDs: (++)

LG GSA-4163B:
Scratches: (++), Jitter: (--), Audio CDs: (+), Copy-protected Audio CDs: (+)

NEC ND-3540A:
Scratches: (--), Jitter: (--), Audio CDs: (+), Copy-protected Audio CDs: (O)

Pioneer DVR-109 XL:
Scratches: (O), Jitter: (-), Audio CDs: (O), Copy-protected Audio CDs: (O)

Plextor PX-716A:
Scratches: (O), Jitter: (-), Audio CDs: (O), Copy-protected Audio CDs: (++)

Plextor PX-740A:
Scratches: (++), Jitter: (++), Audio CDs: (++), Copy-protected Audio CDs: (O)
