Right, my good old BenQ DW1620 finally died on me. Good times.
What I need now is a simple, cheap drive that I can use both for reliable, quality DVD movie burning and for reading CDs and cheap media with no hassles (e.g. I own a Pioneer 112D which is fine for burning but plain sucks at reading CDs and crappier DVD brands).
I did took a look at the "best of 2008" topic, but it seems that choices might not be as obvious as they were a few years ago.
I was looking at the Samsung SH-S223F but reactions seem very mixed. Would this drive suit my above needs ?
Any drive recommendations much appreciated
