If I remember right, Emprex uses BTC drives.

not my first choice, being BTC drives

but if the price is good, id say go for it, burn a couple hundred discs then maybe move up once you know what your doing a little bit better

Hello!

BTC = trash

Don´t buy it, if you want burning readable media. I don´t think it´s cheap. What other drives you have to chioce?

I agree with Scour, I was using BTC for one week and I had nothing but aggravation. Try to stay away from it, I am sure for the same price you can buy top rated burner from newegg.com then you don’t have to bother with BTC one..

I don't agree with you. I've used the BTC for a long time without getting wrong. It May be my good luck, but real.

Maybe Jack Lee used the media, that the BTC loves. But you don´t hace a big choice, almost all other writers could do better with more media.
