I use DVD Dycrypter to rip the files, DVD Shrink to anyalze and compress, and Nero to burn. I have burned about 300 Ritek G 04 Silver Shinny with no problems; however; I just bought 100 Fuji Disc from Best Buy due to the recommendations on this site. I haven't had one problem burning with my Plextor 708A: It has been a high quality product for over a year now! Also, the Ritek G 04 DVD-R 4x that I have been buying have worked great: one coaster out of 300 disk and that was my fault!
Plextor is a premium product, so it will always cost a little more.
why are you using 3 steps for backing up a dvd when you only need to do 2?
just rip and encode with dvdshrink and burn with dvd decrypter, after you hit backup with dvdshrink its all hands off until the burn is done with dvd decrypter
also, premium in what sense? what single feature does a plextor dvd burner do that my pioneer doesn't?
