liteon sucks. i had 4 of them, they all sucked so why the hell did i keep on buying them??
anyways i bought a beautiful shiny 2500a a couple months ago and wow! what a dream. all those unused g04’s that i was ready to dump in the trash after witnessing the horrific results that my liteons had produced… i couldnt believe how important selecting a burner would be. and all those perfect ricoh’s that i burned at 8x for 43 cents a piece… wow. i couldnt do kprobe scans anymore now with my liteon gone but what for?? they all worked perfect.
now im moving away for college in a few days and my dad especially will miss all those great movies that i burned for him so i was thinking of leaving my precious 2500a here at home with my family to enjoy and purchasing myself a nice new 3500a. that is of course if it promises to be as efficient as my 2500a.
so tell me… have the rest of you had as much success with your 3500a’s as i have had with my 2500a? i heard somwhere it can burn 8x ricoh media at 16x. is this true and how are the results? flawless or mixed? it takes me about 9:37 or so to burn a movie at 8x with nero. what is the average time at 16x? is it really worth the extra money since most of the time is wasted processing and encoding the film? please let me hear your ideas!
