Thoroughly disgusted by a bad BenQ1640/NewEgg experience, I am looking at purchasing a PX-716SA. I haven’t done much DVD burning, but expect to do a lot for a long time.
The first quality I want is reliability. Flexibility and speed come after that.
While shopping, I noticed that the “SA” meant SATA. In my simple-mind, since SATA is faster than IDE, it follows that a SATA DVD-RW would be faster than an IDE ?
Is this true, or simple-minded (but wrong) thinking ?
The PX-716SA is more than twice the cost of a DW1640, but then the 1640 may arrive non-functional. Is the difference in cost worth it ?
Thanks in advance.
