Currently i own a Plextor Premium cd-r/rw drive and i must say i love that drive. I have yet to make a coaster with it, simply wonderful.
As of lately i’ve been looking to getting a DVD burner for my computer. I have a stand alone for my living room (DVP NS315/B) and it supports DVD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW. I’m looking for a realiable DVD burner, I have heard that the minus format is getting behind the plus format in the “format race” and that eventually the minus format will stop being made. Aside of all that i do favor the plus format (from what i’ve read) but i have no experience with either formats.
I’ll be honest here, lately i was looking at the Plextor 504A combo drive, i read a few good reviews on it and it seems to be a bad seed of some sort. I know its a rebadged drive but i dont really care, as long as i have a realiable dvd burner that will back up movies effeciently, and well with other top-notch programs like dvdxcopy and or clonedvd. I’m not concerned about speed, heh i still burn at 8x on my plextor premium.
Now here’s the kicker, i was thinking 2 drives since i have a PX-Premium, but i’m open for suggestions. I’d like to know of a good realiable combo drive out there that you guys recommend or perhaps just a dvd burner (non cd-r/rw). Like i said before the dvd burner will backup movies only, i dont intend to do anything else with it except backing up dvd movies etc.
As of right now, price doesnt matter to me at all. I was even looking at the Plextor 708A dual format dvd/cd burner too…
Any suggestions guys help a new guy out
thankx and peace!
