hi guys,
i’m planning on buying a DVD writer…i’m from India
i have boiled down my choices to the above 2 writers…
the LG writer got the Editor’s choice award here, though the 1640 has not been reviewed yet…

my priorities are burning single layer DVD’s at decent speeds with no problems as such…i should be able to burn at good speeds with minimal data loss…
just for backing up movies, music and other data…
there shouldnt be any tray problems in the long run(my current BenQ cd writer is giving a lot of problems in that front)

kinda inclined towards the LG…but plz let me know ur opinions and why u wud choose one over the other…

thanks

I had bad experience with Benq’s 1620 and I also found that it didn’t work very well with DVD-R as opposed to my LG so I would cast my vote for the LG. My best burn ever was with that drive.
