Hi all,

Getting set to buy my first dvd burner, trying to decide between these two. I plan to mostly just make backups of my dvds. Any advice on which to go with? Also right now I have a lite-on 163/L dvd-rom and a lite-on 40125 cd-burner, which one should I keep of the two?

Well, I have an NEC3540 and it is a superb writer.

I also have an LG4163 which is also a superb writer, though I would say the NEC has the edge.

Finally, I have a BenQ which was the best writer of all in terms of both quality and speed. However, the BenQ (my fourth) is dead, and I need a replacement… I’[m looking at the LiteOn1693, too.

I’d be interested in other’s opinions; but out of the three writers I have experience with, the NEC would win.

I would wait for the upcoming Liteon 1635S or Nec 4540.
I think it’s always better to get the latest technologies…
The Liteon 1635S is already available in Asia, so it should reach Europe or North America very soon.

Since it’s not just a Liteon question, I’ve moved your thread to the Optical Drives neutral zone :wink:
