This is my 1st post on this site. I'm about to get a DVD Writer for the first time, and thought what better place to start, for "hands-on" User advice.
I'll be using the DVD writer primarily for its DVD functions, as I already have a CD burner. In addition, having the Lightscribe functionality is a good option. Now, to cut to the chase...
A merchant no longer has the preferred Samsung S243N retail box available, and offered me the Samsung S233L or the Plextor PX-890SA. So far, I haven't found anyone who has used these machines.
Of concern, is of the "re-branding" that I've read of the Plextors, and of the PX-890SA having a 1.5MB buffer memory.
My usage will be in the light-to-moderate range. Foremost, I don't want a machine that sounds like a turbo engine, and would like for it to have decent life-span.
What do you think? Pros? Cons?
Any advice and/or opinions would be welcome, and thanks in advance.
