which would u take? I already have a dvd-burner. I heard the LG can only rip at 6x (my nd-2500a seems to do it at 12x after firmware flash).

edit: my first post! woohoo~~~

I’d go for the LiteOn drive. Although the LG isn’t that bad, the LiteOn appears to perform equal or better in any task. The price should be about equal as well, so I think there aren’t too much reasons too choose for LG.

I’m sorry I can’t be very detailled about the LG, as I only know it from articles etc, but I’m very convinced that the LiteOn really is a (way) better choice.

BTW, welcome aboard!

PS: I moved this to the Recording hardware forum, seems to be the best place for this :slight_smile:

I tend to agree with Dee-ehn on the LG drive. There’s nothing really wrong with LG drives, but it’s just that LiteOn tends to have an edge in a lot of areas.
Furthermore, LiteOn drives handle copy protected discs quite well in general whereas LG usually doesn’t.

Yes, I too agree with Dee-ehn.

Mainly because LiteON drives have a better reputation than LG drives, many more people have them(many more people can help you out), and a great LiteON community.
