I bought the LG 4040B Burner and backed up about 10 DVDs with no problems and what appears to be very high quality. Like I have said in another post I really can’t see the difference between copy and original. But this is all did with the burner and nothing else. I will also be backing up alot of very important Data.
Then I see it…
CDFreaks review of the 4040B.
Before I ever fork over my hard earned coin for anything I review it as much as possible. There was only two real reviews I could find for the 4040B, one was Toms Hardware where it was laballed as being “King Ripper” etc etc.
I was shocked when I read the review here. Have I really spent all this money on a drive that is of poor quality? Anyways… back to drawing board to find a better drive.
Here’s what I have done: I took the 4040B back and got a refund. I did some research and bought the Pioneer DVR-A06U.
Future Shop sells it for $429.99 CDN. And I found it online for $239.99 CDN. Future shop wasn’t happy to price match but they agreed… reluctantly.
So out with the 4040B… in with the A06u. Good choice?
