I recently purchased this dvd burner as OEM. I have tried burners by BENQ, which started to create coasters after just 4 months, and then the supposed top rated Sony DRU-830A which I found to be media finicky, which I returned for a Samsung SH-182M which some reviewers stated was not very good at DVD ripping.
A salesperson recommended this drive but I cannot find much about it on Google.
Has anyone purchased it and what has been your experience?
What media works best with Samsung drives? TDK, Verbatim, Fuji?
In other words is a Samsung drive worth it or should I look at LG, Pioneer, or Plextor? I don’t want to spend more than $50.00, and I still can return it.
