NEC ND-1090A vs. Pioneer DVR-A05 vs. Sony DRU-500A - who wins?

I just posted the article NEC ND-1090A vs. Pioneer DVR-A05 vs. Sony DRU-500A - who wins ?.

jsl used our newssubmit to tell us about a review posted by the German online magazine Chip.de. They compared the NEC ND-1090a (DVD+RW), Pioneer AO5 (DVD-RW) and the Sony-DRU500A (DVD±RW)…

The victory goes to Sony but as the reviewer says; the drive doesn’t function very well and still has a lot of flaws <<< if the winner is sony, think of how bad the other drives must be hehe.

If you read the German article well, then I find that the conclusion does not fit the test results. If you take in account that a DVD-burner should burn cd’s like every other cd-burner, than Sony has a few pro’s but a DVD-writer (Sony) that does not recognise most mediums (cheap or expensive)is not a good dvd-burner. Buy a DVD-burner for its DVD-burn capacities, buy a Lite-On for its cd-burning capacities and buy a Toshiba 1612 reader or Lite-On 163D for its reading capacities. Then you need 3 different readers/writers but until now this is the only way to obtain a good result. No DVD-writer can do all of those jobs well itself. Only time will help.:slight_smile:

I can’t agree on that (maybe it’s because I have a “big tower” and can easily fit 6 drives into it g).

That’s why I don’t read such reviews any longer :wink:
