I am a newbie to cdfreaks, so take it easy on me.
I have been reading the posts here about NEC, BenQ, LG and am now quite confused about which DVD burner to buy. I have also read reviews at Anandtech, Sharky, etc.
I want a reliable burner (quality over speed) and one that I will be able burn and playback on a standard Wal-mart shelf DVD player.
I am leaning towards the NEC 3520A, and also the Sony DDU1613 for ripping.
Would I be better off with the latest BenQ or the latest LG rather than the NEC for burning?
And for ripping is the Sony a descent one or are there better ones available at a reasonable price as the Sony at newegg is less than $26.
I read some place about a "Sheep" test, and would like one that can do at least 2 on more for ripping?
Any assistance would be appreciated.
