Looking For New CD-R Burner / Scanner



My trusty Optiarc AD-7240S may be dead. If so, I would like to get another drive that burns and Disk Quality scans CD-R’s at least as well as the AD-7240S. Would prefer a currently manufactured drive, $20-35 range, instead of an older model that commands premium prices by private sellers (like a BenQ 1640 on eBay).

Have other drives I use for DVD media so am looking for a new drive for its CD-R performance.

If the best choices are other than Optiarcs then that’s OK. I’m not wedded to any name, just the performance.
