Stand Alone Quality



My experience of Stand alone DVD is limited to my own Liteon 5005 and disks produced by a Pioneer.

When I have scanned these DVD’s with Nero CD-DVD Speed the scan qulity has always been poor when compared to DVD’s burned on a pc with a BenQ1620 or NEC 2500.

Is this normal ? or is it possible to buy a stand alone DVD recorder which is capable of DVD Speed scores of 97-98% for a reasonable price ?

At the moment anything that I record with the Liteon I immediately edit and re-record with a BenQ

any thoughts ?
