Drive Durability



Like many people here, I’m torn between a BenQ 1640 and a NEC 3540a…
I’d prefer the BenQ, for its features and performance, but my main issue is durability.
I’ve been using a TEAC CD Writer for the past 5 and a half years and it still works like the first day. I wouldn’t want to have to throw away a DVD writer in a year, and I’m not sure BenQ does quality products when it comes to durability. I thought NEC would be better when it comes to that, but would I be wrong?
