My dvd/cd writer combo drive just recently went out. I’ve been looking to purchase a new one, but I have no idea what to get. I’ve read a lot of the threads and reviews in the forum, but truthfully I don’t understand most of the technical things which are said. I just need a reliable DVD/CD burner that won’t cost me a whole lot which burns a good range of media. Looking to pay about $75-$80. Thanks a lot to those who reply.
This one should fit the bill for you. Act fast while it has free shipping. Link for you
I rather to buy the drive with “LightScribe” capability like BenQ 1655 or you want cheaper the Samsung which is on sale:
LiteScribe, buy a sharpie it’s faster. The Pioneer 111-D is a better burner. That said i do want to pick up the Samsung 18X someday to add the the collection.
But remember Samsung is on sale now otherwise its price unreasonably highier that BenQ drives. So if you plan to add to your collection now is the time.
I’m a LiteOn guy but yet i post to buy the Pioneer, what’s up wit dat? The reason being everybody says that LiteOns don’t burn CDs that well, so i post to buy the Pioneer 111-D which i have 2 of and a BenQ 1650 (all 3 still in bubble wrap). Well i have yet to have a problem with CDs burnt by my Litey 160P. So…?
In contrary Lite-On drive are the best amongst for writing excellent quality CD writing but not so with DVD writing.
Dude, i get awsome DVD burns and scans from my 160P. It’s the reader/ripper and writer at the moment.
EDIT: here’s a link to one of my scans. Click me
But remember the way you scaned the burned disc there is no tesing for jitter portion and without jitter you can’t really tell how the quality of brunt is .
DVDs play just dandy Bud in the Pioneer Elite 5 disc stand alone player that’s almost 3 years old now.
