I just placed an order on a BenQ DW1640. Yeay, I’m excited as it is my first DVD-burner!! :o Anyway…as I already have four IDE-drives (two harddrives and two optical drives) I have to get rid of one of my trustworthy LiteOns. The question is which one?
DVD-reader: LiteOn (or JLMS) XJ-HD166s. I’ve heard it’s a really good ripper. True?
CD-burner: LiteOn LTR-48125s. Not a single coaster. Love this burner.
I will continue to burn a lot of CDs, mostly audio-CDs, and start making backups of my DVD-movies.
So, which one is the smartest to get rid of according to my needs, to make room for my new DW1640?
And by the way, some of you list 5-10 burners in your signature. Do you have several computers just crammed with optical drives??
