Well my Liteon 812S seems to be dying.
Lately I've been getting some failures to verify with Nero on Maxell DVD -R's, so I flashed back from CG5G to US0Q but that didn't help. Last night it choked reading my WinXP CD while doing a scratch install. The same CD was read fine by my Hitachi DVD reader.
I haven't been paying attention to DVD burners lately so I need some advice. I've had good luck with a few Lite-On's but the 812S didn't last that long so I've been looking at the NEC ND-3540A. I've seen both good and bad comments on this drive.
Any advice is appreciated, I guess I'm mostly looking for a reasonably priced DVD burner that will do at least 6X on +R DL media. Burn quality with a wide variety of media would be most important.
