Best burner for double layer dvds...Looking for professional use

this is my first post. Im so glad I found this forum(like it was hard to miss :stuck_out_tongue: ) It’s got so much information and helpful members.

Sorry for another “Best burner…” thread. It’s just that there is a wealth of information that will just confuse me more. I’m a noob to DL dvd, but not everything else about a pc. :disagree:

So im looking for a burner that has the best ability and compatibility with DL and different media. We are going to be using it for some professional works(about 2-3 dvds a week in DL format).

So DL burn has to be top priority.

Thanks :smiley:

If professional work and DL is your top priority should look at the Pioneer 111 or Plextor It’s very popular with most professionals.

For professional use, burn quality is number one.

  • media: Verbatim DVD+R DL 8x (MKM003) or 2.4x (MKM001)
  • burn speed: MKM003 at 6x or 8x. MKM001 at 2.4x or 4x.
  • burner: My pick is Plextor PX-760A (or 760SA the SATA version) or PX-716A/SA (older drive but very good DL burner). Many members get good result with Pioneer 111 (mostly MKM001 shown here) and I got also good result with BenQ 1655 on MKM003.

Great! Thanks
Ok between a Pioneer DVR-111 and a Plextor PX-740A?
I see a great deal on the Plextor PX-740A.

No, not PX-740A, but PX-760A. If you’re tight on budget then the Pioneer will be good.

thanks for your help.
I just got the DVR-111 from [U][B]eBay[/B][/U]
for $39 :slight_smile:

Great I think you will be very happy with your new drive! :slight_smile:
