I'd like to buy a quality DVD burner. One with DVD-RAM capability as well. BenQ, NEC, LG, and Samsung seem to be the brands of choice around here.
I don't necessarily care too much about Lightscribe and its counterparts. I think, for the most part, I will be using the drive to burn tv shows (from hard drive), the occasional movie/game (again from Hard Drive), music, and periodic backups of important files. And of course play games/ watch movies.
Checking out NewEgg, I see:
Samsung SH-S162A and L
Any recommendations? I guess what I seek most is quality burn (few errors) followed by good compatibility with DVD players. Speed is still important to me too though.
