    Two contenders for the DVD crown in my HCPC are either NEC or Plextor. Which would people consider to be the best in picture quality and audio, or are there any others I should be considering ?

    This HCPC will replace a rather expensive DVD player, so I'm not too concerned if I have to spend a bit more to get the quality. Oh and it has to be quiet too !

    I'll vote for LiteOn 812S or 832S. Excellent quality not very noisy and I have yet co come across a CD/DVD that they cannot read.

    I would vote Plextor only because of the copy protection on some cd's. The Plextor drive doesn't have any problems reading these.

    The Plextor I have is almost silent in operation with very good playback quality (I also agree with Branxx that Lite-on dvd roms are very good quality playback for very little money.)
