Simply great - the overvoltage tests are extremely amusing.

I'm not looking for a durable CD-ROM, but these guys took a bunch of CD-ROM drives and performed extreme tests on them - submerged them in water, fed them 220 volts instead of 12, froze them, put them under a car. Kinda a pointless test, but pretty damn_funny.
