Need to get new drive which drive?

Ok which drive is the latest hotest drive? Not including Blue-Ray I can’t afford them prices yet. So which is the latest hotest drive right now?

This is becoming a FAQ :slight_smile: You will get a lot of different
opinions about this. The current flavour-of-the-month
are the Liteon LH-20 and the Pioneer 112. See the
reviews on CD Freaks. http://www.cdfreaks.com/reviews/
Good Luck with the new drive.

So no preferred one over the other right now? If I got a lite-on I see that newegg has…

LITE-ON 20X DVD±R DVD Burner with 12X DVD-RAM write and LightScribe Technology Black E-IDE/ATAPI Model LH-20A1H-185 - OEM.

BTW what is with all the different LH-20A versions? I have seem 1P, 1H, ect making it very confusing this time on what is what unlike earlier versions.

Secondly is it worth getting the 20x one right now? If the quality is not there compared to a 16x than 4x more speed isn’t worth getting and I will stick with the better quality burning and reading drive.

H=LightScribe. P=No LightScribe.

Thanks now to see what others have to say about the read quality and sound. And if this is considered to the better drive over the older drives right now.
