Hey, I’m new to the board.
I’ve been looking around for a DVD burner ever since I read about Plextor PX-708A. Then waited for a DL version to come out.
Now Plextor has brought out the PX-716A, I was looking forward to buying - until I read the reviews and comments. Seems there has been a lot of trouble with this specific model. Which kinda made me disappointed because I had my eye on it.
Anyhoo, since then I’ve been advised on buying the LG 4163, the Pioneer DVR108 and the NEC 3500. The latter has been superseded by the NEC 3520 model.
I’ve been reading the fora and I find that some people are happy with the PX-716, others are having trouble. Ditto with the LG 4163. Haven’t really considered the Pioneer 108, though it seems to write to RW discs at only 4x rather than 8x with the other models. Am still waiting to hear about the NEC 3520.
Basically, all this is really doing my head in because I keep getting confused. One drive seems to be hopeful, then it’s cursed with problems.
Please give me some advice!
Should I buy a drive now, and if so which? Or should I wait for a month or so before deciding?
