I’m interested in buying a DVD burner and have a question I hope you guys can help with.
If it helps any, my primary uses of the burner would be:
- Burn anime, so a whole series wouldn’t span so many CDs.
(played on Lite-On 166S)
- Compile various VCDs together for the same reason above.
(played on Apex DVD standalone)
- Although I don’t have one, it would be nice to be able to back up PS2 or Xbox games if I choose to get either system.
My main interest for getting a DVD burner is that the media has gotten a bit cheaper.
An example from pricewatch:
From what I gathered, some burners don’t handle generics well. Using higher quality stuff is fine on occasion, but if I can’t use generics most of the time, then i’ll just wait until media prices get cheaper.
Is there a burner out there that can handle generics well? (Well, as in not a lot of coasters, and not having to burn at 1X)
I was leaning towards a Lite-On 411S because I’ve been happy with the CD burner and DVD Rom they made. However, there seems to be a lot of complaints about the drive which makes me want to rethink that. My preference right now would be a dual format drive, so I can keep my options open.
