First off, I’ve already done a bunch of searches etc, but I haven’t really kept on top of things in this area in a couple years, so I’m just looking for some confirmation or correction. I’ve been burning CDs since they were $7 apiece but with DVD±R/W I just picked up a GSA-4040B when they got cheap, got a stack of G03s and washed my hands of the mess. Glad most of the drive/player/media reliability/compatibility issues seem to have gotten better since then.
Anyways, I’ve taken on a project as part of a charity fundraiser, which basically entails burning a bunch of copies of a video DVD (ie will mostly be used in various set-top players). I was due for an upgrade anyways, so my question is, can I go wrong with (or do much better than) an LG 4163 and bitset TY02 DVD+Rs for this? Outside of this, my main use for DVDs is as archival/second backup for data, so I don’t really care about anything but write quality using fairly specific media. Thanks!
