Ok, all I want is a burned which makes good burns with good discs (Taiyo Yuden and maybe Verbatim and in case non of them are readable in my Gamecube Riteks :() and I think it would be nice if it did quality scans since I have quite a lot of DVDs of questionable quality.
I don't care that much about rip speed, burn speed, cd-copies, copy protections, ..
To make it easier for you I will list four alternatives:
* Plextor PX-755A
It's NOT much more expensive so don't judge on that. However their policys seems to suck and scans will take much longer time with this one? Also the new LGs burn discs even better?
Also limited community support/retarded behavior from the company isn't good for me since I won't use the drive only in Windows.
* LG H22N or whatever it was called.
Is this still the best LG? Does it have the best burns? It don't do scans thought. Or are there some other LG which does as good or almost as good burns + scans aswell?
* Lite-On LH-20A1P
When I read some scan threads a few weeks ago it seemed the (then) latest Lite-On drive didn't do so good burns, but from the review of this one it seems like a very nice drive. Was the other one another drive or what is up? New firmware which fixes the troubles? Does this even do good burns except it's also a scanner aswell?
What's the difference of this drive and the LH-20A1H?
* Wait for Plextor to release whatever lite-on based drive and buy that one if it's cheaper / buy the comparable lite-on drive and flash it.
I wanted to make a poll but then people would vote without telling why so I skip that. Tell me which drive you suggest and why. Other alternatives (LG bla bla 42 and so on) is ok aswell if you give a reason for it.
Is the Lite-On a very good drive? ;/
Which 18/20x lite-on was the one with mediocre burn quality?
