Manufacturers like ASUS, Lit-O, etc, etc splash their write speeds
everywhere, but there's precious little on how fast they read DVDs.

For example, right now I'm dd'ing a 7.4GB DVD and pv says that it'll take
approx 30 minutes to complete.

pv /dev/cdrom | dd bs=2048 count=3613450 of=JAPANS_WAR-pv.iso

Is this a reasonable speed?

God didn't give America it's rights; men with guns violently took
them with from other men with guns.
