peoples preferences ?
I believe topics on whichis the best burner ( I assume this is what you’re after) are extensively dealt with in the past.
I would suggest using the search function availabel on this forum in the upper right corner.
But it very much depends on what you are using the burner for. Plextor is the best in general, but has problems with SafeDisc 2 protection (you have to make sure you have the right model, TLA# and firmware to be able to make copies of SD2 protected discs)
