Recommendations of Internal IDE DVD Burner

vbimport

#1

OK this is my first post.

I am looking for a DVD Burner for mostly burning/backup movies and some CD’s. I have young children that tend to think the disks are frisbees. :slight_smile: Mainly I am looking for the following:

  1. Highest CD and DVD burn quality and compatibility for players
  2. Decent speed (who isn’t though?? but not at the cost of quality)
  3. IDE

After looking through this site I think I have narrowed the search down to a Pioneer DVR-115D or a Lite-On DH-20A4. I just want to get the opinion of this group to see what they would recommend out of those two, or if they would recommend something different and why.

I am looking to get this within the next week, and am in the US just in case that helps narrow it down.

Thanks in advance.

If I were you, I go directly for the pionner DVR-115D
it’s hard to find it right here.
Otherwise i can guess you a samsung SH-S203B , very good Cd/DVD burner and reader also

Correction: DVR-115D should be a DVR-116D. In my haste, I mis-typed.

I’d go for the 115D over the 116D currently, from what I see/hear on the forum.

Since you’re in the US, you can find it here: http://www.meritline.com/pioneer-dvr-115d-20x-burner.html

the 116 drives need firmware improvements. you can still get the 115d direct from pioneer

I put in my order at Pioneer for the 115d, and after ordering and getting the run around, they told me the 115d has been discontinued and will upgrade me to the 116d. I am supposed to receive the 116d today so I am hoping the firmware is up to snuff. :rolleyes:

Oh no! Thanks for the info that the 115D isn’t available from Pioneer anymore :eek:
