Hello. You ladies and gentlemen are truly "CD FREAKS"
Been lurking here for a while, getting a feel for what DVD burner to buy. I am really considering the new NEC 3250A, based on raves about other NEC drives. My other choices would be the 109 Pioneer or BenQ, if I could find a good seller online or big box stores.
My criteria are:
Backwards compatability with stand alone player (old Panasonic) Bitsetting?
Newegg or Zipzoomfly seller. B&M store will work, too.
Burn speed - Would rather have accurate slower burns that fast burns.
Noise of drive
Firmware support? I know NEC has a lot of hacked firmware to get the features other drives natively support.
Uses - Backing up DVD and Xbox collection (aware of mod chip needed). New baby is getting into everything, and LOVES to "arrange" our DVD collection. Soon she will figure out how to open them.
Simple data backups.
I am thinking NEC or BenQ. Who sells BenQ that is trustworthy? I know NU is a BenQ 1620, but there seems to be different 1620 (pro?) models.
Thanks for helping this DVD burning Noob.
