CDRLabs DVD Writer Poll - May 2008

Postby Ian on Mon May 05, 2008 2:35 pm

Vote for what you think is the best, all around DVD writer. By doing so, you'll hopefully help those looking to buy a new drive. Once again, I tried to chose original drive designs that are currently available or will be soon.

Feel free to leave comments and an explanation as to why you voted the way you did. Also, if there's a drive you'd like to see added to the poll, let me know.

For reference, here's the top drives from April's poll:

1. Samsung SH-S203B/SH-S203D/SH-S203N/SH-S203P
2. (tied) LG GH22N/GH22L and Pioneer DVR-112/DVR-112D/DVR-A12
3. (tied) Lite-On LH-20A1S/LH-20A1L, LG GH20N/GH20L and Pioneer DVR-215/DVR-215D/DVR-S15

I dropped a number of drives from the list this month. The older LG and Optiarc drives were retired. No one was voting for the Plextor's so they got the axe too.

I know this will anger and sadden some of you.. but the Pioneer 112 and 212 series are also off the list. The drives were replaced by the 115 and 215 series months ago and they're now becoming hard to find. If we had a hall of fame, these would definitely be on there.

Drives removed this month:

LG GSA-H54N/GSA-H54L
LG GSA-H55N/GSA-H55L
Pioneer DVR-112/DVR-112D/DVR-A12
Pioneer DVR-212/DVR-212D/DVR-S12
Plextor PX-800A
Plextor PX-810SA
Plextor PX-810UF
Sony NEC Optiarc AD-7170A/AD-7173A
Sony NEC Optiarc AD-7170S/AD-7173S

The Lite-On iHAS120 is out in some markets so I added it to the poll.

I think that was me. Newegg has OEM versions of it and the Samsung SH-S223F in stock.

Also, there is no poll for the month of June. With the forum upgrade, I just didn't have time to do one.
