I'm down to the last 2 components for my new PC build...the GPU and the DVD burner.
There is too much info to research everything there is to know about what makes the best DVD burner. I don't even know what the most important factors are when looking for a new DVD burner.
As far as I can tell, the choice comes down to...
- Optiarc 724xS (7240s $40ish, 7241s $68ish?) seems a little pricey
- Optiarc 726xS (7260s $24.47, 7261s $27.51)
- Asus 24B1ST/LT $26.10
- Liteon iHAS x24 B (is this the IHAS424-98?) $25.99
- Samsung SH-S243N
Could someone please help me choose between these...or at least help educate me on what the differences are and what I should be looking for? Also, where would be the best place to buy these specific drives...I can't find the S243N? Is there one of these that is the obvious best price/performance value?
While I have you here...I know I need dual layer media to write on, so my choices are DVD+R DL or DVD-R DL...is one better than the other? Is there a certain name brand to look for too? I'm just wanting the best quality for the cheapest price...or price/performance.
Thank you very much,
