A friend want to buy a new DVD-writer (he have only a CD-writer). The writer is the only optical drive in his new computer, so the drive must be a very good reader, too. And the CD/DVD-writing-quality is important.
I think it can one of these drives, because I have good experiences with drives from these two:
Pioneer DVR 108
LG GSA 4160
The NEC 3500 is perhaps a good drive, but the NEC-drives are not good for reading.
LiteOn are great readers, but bad writers, so I don´t think that I can recommend it.
So what you think, which drive to get?
