Its my Bros 21st birthday very soon and was thinking of getting him a really good DVD-RW drive. Now im after something that does everything your average user could want - including dual layerred media and DVD-rams (but apparently there arent many drives that do DVD-ram so I could leave this out).
It would be good if it was fast (but not pointlessly fast) and wasnt too noisey (but a normal amount of noise is perfectly acceptable). Now value is important but I want something that will last and is versatile. Now i have no idea for a budget as i havent researched them yet, meaning I have no idea which one to go for yet either. Will try and look in some PC magazines like PC Plus and PC Advisor to start me off.
I would like to ask the members of this forum to please suggest which one i should get.
Thanks to all posters
EDIT: So far i have been suggested the LG 4163 for one with DVD-ram caperbility, the nec 3540 as a good drive without the DVD-ram, and the SW-9584 as a cheap option but i am not sure whether it does DVD-ram or not.
Anyone any comments on these too?
