Also welcome to CDF’s:
I have 2 Plextor Premium CD-RW’s. One Premium I and one Premium II. They are my best CD-R writer.
If your wanting a CD/DVD writer then i would have to say like Arachne said my Sammy 203B’s SATA drives are the best at this time.
The Sammy 203B’s i think are a little better scratched CD-R disc reader than my Premiums. For reading DVD’s i also like my Sammy 203B’s the best for scratched discs.
Yes with all the quality scans i have seen here over the years here at CDF’s, Tayio Yuden CD-R’s are the best. 16x CD-R burning with the Sammy 203B’s is a good speed. With my Premiums burning TY CD-R’s good just about any speed.
Plextor Premiums are getting hard to find but Samsung 203B’s SATA drives are still pretty easy to find.
I hope i don’t have you confused…
