First post…and mostly a noob. I’ve been searching and reading my way through a lot of posts on the forums and, while most of it goes right over my head, I have learned a bit.
Looking to switch out the DVD drive that was provided with my box and get a burner. Mostly, I’m going to be backing up my CDs with EAC, then of course some data archiving, and finally a bit of music/video burning . Lightscribe and/or LabelFlash would be something I’d try out, but at this point not a dealbreaker. So really basic stuff all in all.
The choices I have are:
LITE-ON iHAS 524
LITE-ON iHAS 320
Asus DRW 24B1ST / LT
Sony AD 7260 (can also get 7240)
Pioneer DVR 219 (can also get 218)
Samsung TS H663 (22x or 24x flavors)
Benq DW 240S
For media, so far the “best” (I guess) that I have ready access to is Verbatim branded DVDs (-R and +R) that DiscSpeed reads as YUDEN000T03.8
Looking for anyone’s expert quick pick…y’all are way, way ahead of me so any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
