Hello everyone, I recently found my way to these forums while trying to do some research and find out a little bit more about plextor drives.
I am wondering do plextor drives write audio cd's better or with more quality than your standard, say, lite-on or LG drive?
They are about 8X as expensive as these drives, and in the end to me they both produce the same result. So there must be some technology or something that makes Plextor drives so much more expensive.
Really though all I want to know is if will they produce better sounding audio cds?
While on the topic of quality, a friend of mine told me there is like 3 or 4 main places in the world where they produce writeable media (cd-r,dvd-r, etc..) and that 95% of the companies selling these things purchase them from these companies and just slap their own name on them.
I'm wondering what your guy's experiences are with different brands of media? Would you agree they are all pretty much the same, or are there certain ones that stand out for you? Is there one brand in particular that seems to be better for audio cds? Same would go for movie discs, any particular brands?
And one last question, do plextor drives have the option of burning at 1X?
The slowest option on my burner is 4X and I use that when writing audio cds, would love to be able to write them at 1X if possible.
