I’m in the process of choosing my first DVD burner. After browsing the forums for different DVD burner models from different manufacturers, I’ve come to conclude that the DVR-109 was the best choice for me. The +R DL capabilities seem nice to have, I will primarily use the burner for DVD media and not CD-R’s, Bitsetting is not important since I will probably primarily use -R media, and I would plan to crossflash the drive to A09 firmware in order to get faster rip speeds. Plus at the range of $50 u.s. at Newegg, I think it is decently priced.
But this is before I heard that the DVR-110 is in close proximity of being released. Therefore these questions come to mind:
Is 8X Zone CLV DVD-R DL (Dual Layer), +R DL (Double Layer) 8x Z-CLV DVD+RW) incentive to wait?
Will it be similarly priced to the 109?
How will the newly released 110’s early firmware compare to the 109?
Based on the answers to these questions or anything else that could be put into consideration, in your opinion would it be wise to wait for the 110? Or to just get the 109 now?
Thanks in advance.
