Most people just use their 360's now.

Ironically, even the 360's use this same similar pattern with their DVD drives.
The Mega.

 I have had both the Samsung and Philips drive, and the Philips actually performed better {less disc read errors, quieter, read more media}. Those Thomson drives were pure garbage, though!

 Hahaha, yeah, most Thomson drives didn't even last a year! If it did last longer, you were just extremely lucky :lol

I think the Halo edition Xbox has the Philips drive, looking at that. But now I want to double check. I know it's not a Samsung drive, though.

 I am pretty sure it's a Philips, as well. My buddy has one and it runs great.

Hm, I reckon the Samsung is better. That make good drives for many different things these days, not that I'm saying Phillips isn't good, because they've brought out their share of fine technology too. But Samsungs seem to last a very long time.

I have a Thomson drive in my Xbox and it still works just fine.  >.>  It was one of the first shipments of consoles as well.

Back in the day, the pie chart was like this:

Thompson- $20 drive
Samsung= $50-60 drive
Phillips= $40 drive

The Mega.
