Sanyo 4x vs. Mitsumi 4x

Does anyone know if the Sanyo quad-speed CD-ROM drives that Gateway
is starting to use will work with Linux?  (I know their Mitsumi
4x drives work).

I can't verify that the Sanyo works, but it is ATAPI complient
according to the folks at Gateway, so theoretically it should
work

Does the Sanyo or the Mitsumi work with a Soundblaster 16 Pro?

These are ATAPI drives: they are IDE devices.  Therefore, they will
not connect through the sound blaster connecter, however, you can
connect the CD sound through the sound blaster.
 
 
 

1. Toshiba 4x v. Mitsumi 4x CD-ROM

Here are the statistics I have compiled:

                Toshiba                         Mitsumi
Buffer          256k                            128k + 128k virtual
DTR Mode 1      600 kb/sec                      600 kb/sec
DTR Mode 2      684 kb/sec                      684 kb/sec
Access
 Random         150 ms                          
 4 Stroke                                       400 ms
 3 Stroke                                       230 ms
 MTBF                                           15,000

I can get either for $218.  Now, which one should I get?  Does the buffer
make that much difference?  Problems or compatibility problems?  Will
Linux have a problem with either?  Which is ACTUALLY faster?

I need to get a CD-ROM ASAP, and have about $200 to spend... and Quad
speed... either IDE or SCSI.  All information would be appreciated.

Thanks.
