First off… yes, I am a “newb.”
I see a lot of forums and threads referring to “Best burners,” but it generally seems as though they are referring to speed and quality. My specific need is for a drive that will burn a lot of discs and will last a respectable amount of time.
I work in a hospital. Medical records are burned to disc upon request and forwarded to other hospitals. Speed and quality are not the main concern. We burn between 10 - 20 discs a day and have gone though 2 burners in 18 months. We currently burn CD’s but are moving towards DVD’s so advice on either would be helpful. Cost is really not a factor either as long as it will last.
Can anyone recommend a burner that can handle this workload continually? I see a lot of talk about the Pioneer 112 and 212’s but no mention as to their ability to withstand the test of time? Is there something specifically that I should be looking for?
I appreciate any help that anyone can offer me.
