[QUOTE=LowWaterMark;2150618]All I care about in a [I]dual-layer[/I] burner is that it [B]1)[/B] be well built, [B]2)[/B] be reliable, and most importantly, [B]3)[/B] burn with absolute and unswerving fidelity to the source audio and video. Assuming I can acquire one, will the [B]PX-760[/B] meet my needs?
In your opinion, is there any [I]other[/I] dual-layer burner that I should consider?[/QUOTE]
The answer to your first question is yes.
In regards to the second question, here is a list of the great IDE/PATA burners to consider (assuming that you specifically want an IDE/PATA burner, which the PX-760A is):
- BenQ DW1640
- Plextor PX-760A
- Optiarc AD-7200A
- Pioneer DVR-115D
If looking at SATA burners, then the list is a little different:
- Samsung SH-S203B
- Optiarc AD-7200S
- Pioneer DVR-215D
- Plextor PX-755SA
The above assumes you are located somewhere in North America.
Note that, like genuine Plextors, genuine BenQ drives are no longer in production, so if you want one, you’ll have to do some hunting.
Also, the reason the PX-755SA is recommended for SATA instead of the PX-760SA is because in North America, the PX-760SA is impossible to find, whereas the PX-755SA does pop up every now and then.
