I'm about to embark an re-ripping my CD collection to FLAC. Back when
I ripped to MP3 I used three PC's at a time and I recall there being a
huge difference in rip speed between the three CDROM drives. In fact
the slowest rip speed was on the fastest computer at the time so I'm
sure it was the drives themselves.

So now I'm looking for firsthand experience on which CDROM drives are
fastest for ripping. I'm willing to buy a new drive just for this
project if it will significantly reduce the time spent on the task.
