Is there a drive that meets the following specifications?
CDR/RW reading or writing capabilities
Speed (I’d much prefer results over speed)
Can successfully burn as many types of media as possible, including + AND - DL. RAM (with and without cartridge) would be a bonus!
Can playback as many types, brands and qualities of DVD media as possible especially cheap ones (but good ones too)
DVDs created by it will play on almost anything
Obviously as few coasters as possible
TOP quality playback of DVDs
Excellent and reliable for storing audio and data.
I want to avoid having to use firmware, flashing, cross-flashing or whatever else they call it at all costs, so a drive which can do the ‘bitsetting’ thing already and has no riplock would be a HUGE relief. If it cannot be avoided, then it would be great if it was free and easy to do!
Top results for writing (speed not that important)
Not asking for much, am I??!!
It may seem that I want EVERYTHING in the drive, however, I have noticed that speed plays a CRUCIAL part in many users’ and expert reviewers’ opinions. Since this doesn’t apply to me, maybe there is a drive that is deemed to be not so good by most but would be perfect for me.
PS Do all BenQs have riplocks? I have read that they need MCSE to remove the lock. Does this apply to the DW1655 as well?
