I tried to start a thread like this a few months back for the same reason but it died quickly. Nobody cares anymore about cd. I just started reading every review of every dvd burner I could, paying only attention to how well it did as a cd burner. That led me to the Pioneers (I have both the 111 and 112) and Samsung 182. I would never have even considered a Samsung, and there are many better dvd burners, but if you check the reviews, and in my experience, they burn a great cd. LG used to make great cd burners (and dvd burners that burned great cd's) but I don't know what's up with them lately, they put out a new burner every week, and the LG 42 I tried was the worst cd burner I've ever used. The burns I get from the Pioneer's and from a LG 10 I have are as good or better than anything I ever got from my Plextor Premium and LiteOn 52327 - both classic cd burners. So I gave up the search and went with dvd burners that I use only as cd burners, and use other burners to burn the dvd's.

Yeah, Pioneer DVD-writers evry good with CD-R. Liteon isn´t very good in that, only the LG H42 is more worst. Hope LG will getting better, their CD-RW since the 32x were very good imo

For future-proofing, I recommend getting a DVD writer that does well with CD's. And, as has already been pointed out, Pioneer makes good DVD burners that record CD's superbly too. I like the Samsung SH-S182D for CD writing, not so much DVD writing. I stick to my Pioneer, NEC, and BenQ drives for DVD burning. :wink:

Believe it or not, the BenQ 1655 burns some nice CDs as well. The scans are dang near as good as the best Lite-On CD burners.

Well, Pioneer are great imho @ CD-burning. But no matter if u buy a CD or DVD-burner, nothing would change dramatically. The CD-R-Makers don´t develope new media, the burner-manufacturer don´t develope anything for CD. And the last CD-burners aren´t great, only a bit cheaper than DVD-burners
