I'm new here since I'm recommending to more of my clients who have small amounts of data to back up, that they backup to DVD-RAM discs.
I've found a lot of variability in the reliability of the typical "Super-Multi Drive", at $30 - $40, in writing and reading DVD-RAM. I'm not interested in a dedicated DVD-RAM writer - just a typical Super Multi drive that is intentionally designed well with regard to its DVD-RAM capability.
So, I'm looking for recommendations for the most reliable drive in the $30 - $40 (or maybe more) range for DVD-RAM data backup. I'll usually be using NTBackup on Windows Server 2003 or Windows XP but which software is used should not matter.
Also, while I know it's another forum where this is treated, I gather that for DVD-RAM (as well as other media) Verbatim is highly regarded. Any other brand DVD-RAM media that is implicitly trustworthy?
Thanks much for any advice.
