My current burner is a HP 9100i, just feels it's taking a while to burn a CD, no burn proof stuff and get noisy when it spins sometimes.
Models available for me to purchase are AOpen, BTC, LG, Sony, Benq, and sometimes Lite-On.
After some prelimary research, I'm leaning towards the LG GCE-8400B, 40x burner.
My HP9100i sometimes makes the noise of a small airplane when it tries to spin and read the CD, does it happen on newer burners?
Is it true that only the 2MB version will have Mt. Rainer capability in the future?
Is that burner any good, any pros/cons, media compatibility?
Is this a good drive, and what other models would you recommand?
