Need a CD R/W & DVD Reader - Suggestions?

I want to buy a terrific internal CD R/W & DVD reader/player (combo). Can someone direct me to an excellent one?

Thanks! :slight_smile:

your best bet is to do some research in the recorder section of the hardware area.

i have a nec 3520 and think it to be very good. others will recommend the benq 1620. still others the lg 4163 etc"…
trying to find the “best” burner or media is not possible. after you research the topic you will find a few acceptable choices and then it is up to you to make the final decision.
welcome to the forum and happy burning. :slight_smile:

Yo ciberfire-

With the costs of 16x DVD/CD burners BELOW the costs of the combo units - it would seem to be best to get the DVD/CD burner IMO-

Good ones are:

NEC 3500 or 3520

Pioneer 108 or 109

Plextor 716


The BenQ’s have been getting good press. I don’t have any model numbers of the latest or best ones but a read throgh the BenQ Forums should help out there.
