Things used to be simple back in the day, plextor was the best but overpriced, Lite-On had a cult following and NEC burners were the shit. These days its hard to find reviews of specific drives, cd-freaks seems to have lost itself in general purpose electronics reviews.
My question is as the title states - I'm looking around on newegg for a dvd burner to replace mine. My old one was chewing up verbatim media (sorry I dont have a media code I'm at work) at an incredible rate. I dont care about litescribe etc - I'll never use it.
I dont burn all that much and know I should grab some TY media in the future but atm I need a new burner. Any suggestions? I understand the Samsung se/sh model linup is well liked but there are 3 of them and the newest ones dont have much by way of reviews.
BTW: What happened to dvd burner prices? They used to be $22-25. Now they're all $30. No way its BD-burner demand, it cant be high enough yet.
Thanks for the help.
