Hi guys, this is my first post here, and before I posted it i tried to look through the stickys, i can’t believe how much info is on this board…
Anyways, I was interested in a sony dru 830a burner. I found out thanks to this board that it is basically a samsung SH-S182D. I found the samsung for $30 but the sony is around $60-$70.
Is there any reason to pick the sony over the samsung? If its the same hardware, wouldn’t you rather save $30?
I’ve been burning with a old sony 8x, and its treated me well, but i would like some more speed. That is why i was looking at the dru 830a.
Basically I’m just looking for something to back up my dvd movies. I don’t really care much about the time it takes to scan it, i just care about not making expensive coasters. I’m willing to spend up to $100 on a burner, but i would like to save money if i can. I haven’t read much negatives on the burners I mentioned, but if anyone has a different opinion i wouldn’t mind reading it.
