I’m looking for my first BR burner for a dedicated media center. I’ve read up on drives and it seems the LG BH14NS40 and Panasonic BDR-2208 are good drives. I’ve looked to the drives performance in the relevant posts and they both seem to burn well.
I don’t think I’ll be doing much burning except for data backups. Mostly will use for BR/DVD/CD playback so a quiet drive would be nice (I notice the pioneer has a quiet mode).
Any suggestions on these or even other ‘currently available’ drives?
