The Samsung SH-182D did a very good job at ripping the DAE test CD. Of all my drives I've tested so far, the SH-182D got the best DAE results (according to the "Total Test Result" of the DAE log).
The only strange thing is that it didn't slow down, but ripped with highest speed, even when selecting 4x in EAC. That is why the results of actual/4x do not differ much.

Another "proof" of Samsung drives are very good at DAE (well, "proof" only as far as you believe in these DAE test procedure).

About the speed: you can use cd bremse to force it to slow down. It didn't matter much with my samsung though. Speed seems to make no difference.
