Stand-alone burners

Are stand-alone CD burners junk? I was thinking of buying a CD duplicator (not the expensive manufacturing-scale copiers, just the personal disc-to-disc variety that you can buy at BestBuy). I know when I'm burning CD's with a computer, it recommends making a copy to the hard drive first before burning a disc. Will a stand-alone unit make a poor quality copy because it has no HD?

some have a hd

Is that the 2MB cache that is advertised? The product in question is a $200 unit…nothing fancy

Can you give us a link to the product, so we can evaluate it!

If it only has a 2 mb buffer, it sounds like it doesnt have a hdd,
I did see the ones in tigerdirect for about 300, but I dont have it has a hard drive. Kanguru’s have Plextor and Yamaha drive’s in them.

Do some research before, and make an informed decision.

And please if there is a link to it on a page, by all means dont be afraid to post it. The more info we have the more we can help…
