Best Burner for Rewriting

vbimport

#1

A client of mine wants a burner that is one of the top three burners out there, and says that the rewrite capability is the most important function to him.

So, which brands/models are the best, most reliable, and produce the best quality burns on rewritable CD’s?

I know that Plextor and Lite-On are the most popular, and I usually put Lite-On burners in my systems, but I just want to be sure that the burner that I do get for him will be of high quality for rewrites, and won’t fail after a while, as rewrites obviously put more strain on a burner than do one-time recording cd sessions.

As long as the quality of the RW discs is okay, both Plextor and LiteOn are fine.

If you choose a model, make sure it (fully) understands Mount Rainier.

Compare those 2 by reading the reviews :

[COLOR=darkblue]Plextor PX-W4824A - CD-(M)RW Tests

LiteOn LTR-52246S - CD-(M)RW Tests

Perhaps it helps to find a peace of mind [/COLOR] :wink:

Just make sure you don’t buy any Memorex brand CD-RW blanks. Maxell and Verbatim have been reliable for me the past year. I do weekly backups of large and multiple files on 2 CDRW discs.

Great. Thanks for the info.

Thanks. That Lite-On model is the exact one I was looking at. How’s the Plextor PX-W4824TA-SW for Mt. Rainier, or is it similar to the model that you mentioned?

Looks like Plextor wins that one. Thanks again.

Yes. The PlexWriter 48/24/48A E-IDE & PX-W4824TA/SW is the same drive >

Is there a difference between a Plextor PX-WxxxxTA and PX-WxxxxA drive?

Never used any Imation CDRWs, so can’t tell you what the quality is. Perhaps someone who has experience can chip in.

Imation CDRWs :Z :Z

Why? Imation’s CD-R’s have worked fine for me. What’s up with their CD-RW’s?

What are the top three makers of blank CD-RW’s?
