I just want to know if this is a good dvd recorder to buy.

I mainly want to use it for backing up games, dvds, and burning data and music. Is it a 2sheep burner? I use alcohol 120%. Will the drive work well with that? Will it get past the copy protections well? Thanks for any help. :wink:

Not great is the short version, read here: http://www.cdfreaks.com/article/203

Could you recommend a good OEM drive then? In the $45 and under area.

Well, not < $45 but well worth the extra $1.99
Not sure on the game backup capability though.

Does it burn well for you? I’ll most likely be getting that.

Good two sheep burners are the Plextor, Pioneer, Toshiba, LG, and Lite-on drives. For CD’s , best to use a CDRW drive over any of the DVD burners. Even my Khypermedia 52x CDRW drive does a great job of making copies.

I have had mine for 2 weeks now.
Have to admit I haven’t used it much yet as I have other things taking my time at the moment.
A quick browse throught the BenQ forums ought to answer the question for you though.

Does This drive get the job done well? Sorry if I’m being a bother.
