Please-need help choosing cd/dvd dl burner

Hello. Im looking to buy reasonably priced allaround burner that would preform great on cd as well as dvd. Is Samsung sh 182 as good as it seems? Want to use it to back up my games, movies and cd collection. Thank You in advance for you help and suggestions.

There are many “good” choices for a dvd burner. Names like NEC, Pioneer, Sony, Lite-On, PLextor, BenQ for example. As far as backing up games, check out the copy protection forum, and also if you have ever read a complete review of a drive, they go into specific detail about backing up, it is referred to as how many “sheep burner” I can’t explain it very well, but if you read the preface to the review it will explain. Good luck.
