I'm trying to pick an 8x dvd burner

I’m trying to pick an 8X dvd burner, but, even after reading multiple reviews, I can’t decide which one to pick.

I just know that I don’t want to pay more than $200 for a burner, and I want one that’s works relaibly with memorex or maxell media. I also want to be able to play back-up dvd movies/shows in my standalone dvd player.

I’m looking at the following burners which I’ll purchase from either Best Buy, Circuit City or Office Depot:

Plextor PX-708A - $199.99
Memorex True 8x Dual Format- $199.99 - $50 rebate = $149.99 A/R
Lite-On LDW-811S - $139.99
Sony DRU530A $179.99 - $30 rebate = $149.99 A/R

Opinions and personal experience with these drives and fairly inexpensive memorex or maxell media would be very appreciated. :bow:

Thanks. :smiley:

Hi jolly_grunt,

If I were you I’d definitely go for Memorex, simply because it’s the rebadged [COLOR=blue]Pioneer DVR-A07
