Quality burns depend also with media you choose. Since you also cross-post in Pioneer, Lite-On, NEC and General hardware forum, you might get different prespective from there.

My Plextor 712a burns excellent quality and comparable with BenQ 1620. With current rebate both prices are equal. Plextor and BenQ support booktype out of the box. If you add speed, then BenQ 1620 wins because it burns 16x while 712a 12x. However if you learn more, 712a will burn faster than 1620 at 12x because of PCAV method.

Some says BenQ 1620 does not perform well with DVD-R. I cannot comment on this since I never use -R.

Currently Plextor 716a needs firmware fix before it can compete. But if mature enough, I believe 716a can also be considered.

Plextools Professional utility is undoubtly a plus for plextor user. The excellent manual, more than 100 pages, is a great addition (compare to BenQ 1620 only a piece of paper folded few times :wink: ).

Please do not [thread=114412]crosspost[/thread]. You started 5 threads about this!

A crossposting record hard to beat… :confused:

BTW, go for NEC ND-3500 OEM GOLD. Perfect drive. :wink:

iam tryingto find out which is the best i dont care about speed just quality, it would be a good idea to have a section in recording hd forum for all the dvd rw so people can get a good idea what too buy. but iam sorry for posting in all the forums
