I need to buy a DVD writer not only good at writing DVD’s, but also good at reading them.

My options are:

LG 4163
NEC 3540
LITEON 1693


#2

The one you want is the Lite-On 1693 it’s very good burning a DVD and also it’s A very good reader strait out of the box.


#3

Yes/1693 has good reports! The 3540 needs a hack from this forum to do better, but the hack is good.

consider also
1640
110D
4550
A10

LG-4163B / LG-4167 are too good drives, though you may want to get the 4167 as it has updated specifications.
