High-end DVD-+RW/DL purchase question

Postby BomBastik on Tue Nov 02, 2004 5:57 am

Greets every1.

I've always been a big Plextor enthusiast so naturally I took the only "apparently" valid option at the time (end-03) and purchased a PX-708A.

... That's it I had it with that drive! I'm gonna sell it cheap a buy a new one... good ridance Plextor.

Naturally PX-712 and 716 are *NOT* options for me to consider, I'm steering well clear of those (sorry all Plex fans, but 708A was a major letdown for me...)

So what I need is a DVD that has the follwoing capabilities (in order of preference):
1-Write quality
2-Media compatability(+R,-R,+RW,-RW)
3-Price

Not really interested in
1-Read perfomance (I have a LiteOn SOHD-163T, quite good)
2-DualLayer

Perfomance is a non-issue, if it perfoms "excelent", good, if it doesn't "too bad", not a show-stopper for me.

I have it narrowed down to these 3:

1 - NEC 3500A
2 - LG GSA-4160B
3 - BenQ DW1620

I seriously thinkinh about the NEC as it is the cheapest one were I live.

Oppinions? Advices? Experiences?

Thanx,
Pedro

All well and good...but why limit yourself to a list that lacks the Pioneer DVR-108/A08XLA/B?

Nothing really.

Here the P108A is more expensive, and I've had bad experiences with Pioneer burners in the past (though 108A is high ranked).... You can judge how I treat my bad experiences with what I'm doing the Plextor drives...
