Artec DVD Burner - Any Good?

I keep seeing the Artec brand at the local Fry’s. I’m not familar with this brand and how good/bad it is. Has anyone had experiece with this make? Is this a rebadge model made by some other manufacturer? If so, who?

Thanks in advance.

Please read the posting guidelines announcement at the top of the forum about the use of the search function… :wink:

Short answer: I think that Artec ranks #1 on everyone’s list!*

  • of worst drive ever

Artec seem to be mixing about with their own made drives and OEM drives. Some drives they sell are rebadged BenQ’s some are their own crap. I recently picked up a Artec drive that was just an OEM BenQ 1620 in a box with BenQ firmware G7N9, so it all depends.

Well, my post in this thread was also made over half a year ago. :wink: Back when the performance results of their latest in-house drive was still fresh in people’s memory…

I think Artec is scared to have their drives tested.
I sent multiple requests for a sample/review unit and I was completely ignored. :Z

Yeah, this must have be an reason.

They wanted to be the first with an 12x dvd burner on the market - but they haven’t made some functionality tests, so it seemed… :frowning: brrrrrrr
