I got the OEM version for Â£45 at a computer fair brand new, I couldn't let such a bargain get out of my hands and this burner also has a good burn quality reputation too with supposedly bad quality DVD-R/DVD+R and obviously good quality on good DVD-R/DVD+R.
I got a pack of 25 INFOSMART 4x DVD-Rs (considered low quality) too and everything seems to be running VERY smooth.
I haven't had one burn error yet in Alcohol 120% or Nero 6 and no bad sectors on any burn't DVD-Rs from a Read Error Test in DVDINFOPro. The burn't DVD-Rs work fine on all of my DVD Players and XBOX/PS2.
Will Herries "1.07 v2 Dual Layer Bitsetting Beta 5" firmware allow me to burn at 8x on these INFOSMART DVD-R's?
