I still haven’t bought a drive, as someone might remember the #1 priority was quality of the discs burned. #2 it would be nice with good scaning abilities and ability to read bad/scratched discs.
Not very important at all is price, overspeed, overburn, good for backups, good ripper, good cd-burner, and so on.
Media will be Taiyo Yuden DVD+R media only I suppose, except if my Gamecube can’t read that and I will have to use Riteks for that anyway.
As it is now Pioneer DVR-111D and LG H22N looks like good burners, but the first one doesn’t do quality scans and is it really better than the PX-755A? The scans I’ve seen from the LG seems to say it’s a very nice drive but it doesn’t do quality scans at all.
An alternative would be the Benq DW1650 which seems to do it all but is it really BETTER than the PX-755A?
If I get the LG I suppose I should get a lite-on for scans if I want that, but will that drive to scans better than the Plextor? I can do whatever is necessary to “fix” the Plextor so CD/DVD speed or kprobe works, right? Is it any worse than the lite-on then? (I’ve understood that with plextools you can just do one test at the time which makes the whole process take long time, but that is a problem with the program and not the drive, or?)
So, I guess the question is:
Shall I get the PX-755A? Or would I really get better results with the LG H22N + one lite-on drive (seems so retarded to buy two drives when you will just use one as scanner and never as burner but I guess since they are cheap that doesn’t matter, the PX-755A is cheaper than getting two drives thought.)
Or is something else even better?
