Considering buying a 3520

Hello

I am close to buying my first dvd recorder, and looking at various sites and forums have it narrowed down to either a BenQ 16xx (can’t remember), a Pioneer 109 or a NEC 3520.

So far the NEc seems most interesting because it’s quite a bit cheaper than the other 2. And I think I prefer the Pioneer over the BenQ. My question is simply, will I be able to get good quality writings with the NEC and Ritek G05 media or maybe Verbatim 8x ?

I won’t be using to burner every day, on a busy month I might end up with 15 burns. But I still want good quality. My friend has a Pioneer 109, and he uses the Ritek G05. Seems to work fine, will I get good results with that media and the 3520?

I’m not too worried about writing speeds, and 12x is perfectly fine. 8x I can live with too as long as I get good quality discs.

also I’m still a bit confused about +r and -r, but seems I should just get which is cheapest?

Hope someone can give me a pointer on what to get.

Thx in advance

Yes to both. Outstanding quality burns can be achieved with both media types at 8x (their rated speed).
