I currently have a Liteon 52537 and a Mitsumi 485g.
I am happy with both.
I want to buy 3rd CD-RW (no DVD burner please)
I am having a hard time choosing between the 3. Teac the older 540 model with 8Mb or Plextor Premium with 8Mb or yamaha with 8Mb. The choice is not based alone on the MB. Lasting, durability counts too.
I will probably keep this drive stored. Not for immediate use.
I read reviews on all 3. They all did well in reviews on this forum.
The Plextor is about $90 teac about $90 and the Yamaha about $120. Price is not an issue.
I mainly burn music CD and data. No games. I tried to do backups with my liteon and mitsumi on my games but i get errors most of the time.
Out of the 3 which one would be better for back up my flight simulator game MFS2000 and MFS 2002 and MFS 2004. They are getting scratched.
I am interested in these models only. Teac has a newer model out but did not have good reviews.
I know there are fans for all these 3 manufacturers. Based on OWNER experience which on you would recommend?
Any input welcome.
