Hi to everyone!, great forum you got goin on in here.
Well I’m new to this forum and I would need some advice for buying a dvd recorder. I just know the very basics about dvd recorders so that’s why I would need your advice in picking a device from the ones below.

these are the things i need to be sure about:

1)Reading: I´m planing to use it as main media reading device for a while ( does it need to be region fre or something to read dvd movies, I’m on argentina region think it’s region 3)
2)Recording: I´m planing to burn dvds mainly for data storage, make dvd movie back ups in a future (whenever I learn how to)
3)I´m planing to keep on recording cd-r for a once in a while
4)Need good compatibility with media brands
5) Support : firmware upgradable

The ones i got to chose from:

DVD-RW LG GSA-4120B DL 12x
DVD-RW Samsung TS-H552 DL 16x
DVD-RW LG GSA-4160B DL 16x
DVD-RW Nec ND3520A DL 16x
DVD-RW Pioneer DVR-108D DL 16x
DVD-RW Pioneer DVR-109D DL 16x

Well that’s all for now, I thak you all beforehand just for reading this, since you get this kinda threads a lot a guess, I´m not a cd freak :bow: but I just giving the first step :slight_smile: , be patient.

PS: I read the sticky thread about which dvdr to buy, but it didn´t hepl much, sorry

Greatings from Argentina.

Well finally i decided to go for the Lg GSA 4163B, after reading some reviews i chose this one over the Pioneer 109d and the Nec 3520. Wanted a dvdr that can handle cds as good as dvds plus some extra feature that could make it worthy buying. Even though the pioneer supports higher speeds in DL media I think the LG manages to keep up since it’s faster than Pioneer and Nec, plus I liked the bitsetting capabilities, and the good cd handling and dvd error correction the lg has . Correct me if I’m wrong.

thx for answering Cya
