I’m finally getting a DVD burner and would like some quality CDFreaks recommendations! My most important criteria are DVD-RAM compatability (which is why I’ve ruled out the BenQ 1650/1655) and excellent CD reading, for use with EAC (which is why I’ve ruled out the NEC models). I’m still debating between the Pioneer 111 and the LG 4167B, but am leaning more towards the LG. I am also considering the H10N, but I can’t find enough solid info about it yet (as far as read quality)
Can anyone give me some of the advantages of the Pioneer over the LG, and how the Pioneer does with EAC? i’m reading that Pioneer has fantastic writing capabilities but does not support bitsetting without unofficial firmware. Also, I understand that the LG works best as a paperweight when it comes to scanning… but how important is scanning exactly? Is it vital for practical use, or is it more of a purist thing?
Thanks to anyone who can help!
EDIT: also, if it makes a difference, I will be using this as an external drive via firewire with my Dell Inspiron 9300 laptop.
