I want to get a DVD recorder but I'm having a hard time deciding which one to get:
Originally I was going to get hte Teac DV-W50D(190$) but then I saw an ad of a local retailer selling the LiteOn at 119$ and I was thinking if Teac's multi-format capability really justifies spending 70$ more on this drive.
Judging from their specs both drives should perform pretty equally (except for the lack of DVD-R cap with LiteOn's drive). After all mere performance isn't even my first concern, I wouldn't care if one of the drives took a minute longer to create a CD/DVD than the other one. What I'm far more concerned about is media compatibility, as I don't want to be stuck with expensive medias because the cheap ones don't work with my inexpensive dvd recorder.
I'd really appreciate any suggestion or comment since I'm pretty lost here (found very positive reviews of teac's drive but nearly nothing about the liteOn)
