I’m putting together a new system and want an SATA dvd burner combo drive. Budget about $30 US.
I’ve checked the “top 5 drives” poll from 2008, but none of those seem to be in stock currently where I’ll be ordering (newegg). It seems a lot of the drives available are newer models/series.
My main concerns are audio ripping accuracy, dvd ripping, and speed (in that order). I also want SATA vs IDE. I’ve owned about every make that there is of burner over the years, samsung, plextor, hp, liteon, nec. I currently have an nec and liteon in my system and have no brand loyalty/preference.
Please post any suggestions/advice. Thank You
