I was thinking of buying the drive below:
I was just looking through all the threads about the LG GSA-5163D External DVD-Rewriter and I noticed that there’s a lot of people here reporting problems.
I was also thinking of buying this DVD-Rewriter below:
So, which drive would you recommend? The LG GSA-5163D or the Freecom drive?
Basically, I only really need a DVD-Rewriter so that I can backup my original Region 2 DVDs and backup my original computer console games. I don’t really need to “create” my own DVD movies or data DVD discs.
I have programs such as DVD Decrypter, CDRwin, Alcohol and Burnatonce installed as well as Easy CD & DVD Creator 6. I’ve never liked Nero so I don’t need to worry about getting that to backup my DVDs.
By the way, my PC specs are;
2 Ghz Intel Celeron processor;
256 Mb RAM;
40 Gb Hard Drive;
On board USB 2.0 (6 ports);
On board Firewire (2 ports);
Windows XP Home Edition.
And another thing, I’m willing to spend as much as possible to get good quality and reliable blank DVD-R and DVD+R discs.
