I've been lurking on this forum for several months now in order to learn something about DVD burners and now I've decided to go ahead a buy one. But which one??
Here are my needs:
1) to burn homemade movies to be shown on a standard home DVD player connected to a TV. What format or specification should I be looking at?
2) to copy an occasional movie on DVD. What would be a good ripper?
3) to store music in .wav format on DVD to be played on a standard home DVD player through a TV or, if connected, to a stereo system.
4) to backup data from my harddrive.
I don't want to spend more than $100. Based on what I've been reading in this and other forums, I'm currently looking at the NEC ND-2500A, the Lite-On 851S, and the Lite-On 812S. Are there any others which may be better?
Thanks in advance for your answers.
By the way, I'm also posting this same question on the NECforum.
