-RAM refers to support for reading and writing DVD-RAM, a rewritable DVD standard. The Benq will be better if you don't need -RAM capability.

In Europe, DVD-RAM is neither obsolete nor dead, in the contrary, it is starting to live. You can easily find 5x speed DVD-RAM media in a couple of shops

In Germany u will get everywhere DVD-RAM-media. It´s only a bit harder to find 5x-media, but 3x-media it´s not a problem.

@jlaavenger

If u need DVD-RAM, buy a LG :)

If u don´t need it, a Benq 1650 or 1655 should be your first choice

Scour: both os-mediatrade and alternate sell 5x dvd-ram media, and at least os-mediatrade ships to all european countries -> you can get 5x dvd-ram media in europe easily :wink:

Thanks for the tipp :)

But at the moment I only have a 1640 without RAM and a LG 4082 with only 3x-RAM.

But I´m sure I will buy soon again a DVD-writer with RAM, maybe with 12x or 16x :)
