Ok so I am new to the forums (mostly because its time to replace my old NEC 3520) and over the past couple of days have been perusing the various manufacturer forums.
One thing I’ve noticed is that outside of the Liteon Forums that Liteon drives seem to have a reputation of being one of the best scanning drives out there, but only so-so at burning (behind the Pioneer 111 series and the BenQ’s) - This could be totally untrue, and I hope that it is - so I figured I’d pose this question to the experts themselves
Scanning is important to me, so I already ordered a LH-20A1P-186 from Newegg (free shipping makes the retail box cheaper than the OEM! :eek - I have done some research on this drive and the majority of the scans I see look great, but I also realize that most people aren’t going to post their “bad scans” when they are trying to show off.
I am wondering if I should be considering getting another drive (namely a Pioneer or a BenQ) to do the actual burning and using the Liteon just as the scanner.
Anybody who has experience with the various drives care to enlighten me ?? Is it common to use another drive to burn and the liteon to scan? All brand loyalty aside, I just want to do what I have to do to get the best burn I can get…
