What are the best scanners? Benq? LG?


I bought 2 days ago a Pioneer DVR-111D with firmware 1.19.
A lot of people told me that it’s not a good scanner that’s why I plan to buy a new burner which is a good scanner. However It has an excellent writing quality.

What would you recommend to me ?
Is LG 4166B any good (it has lightscribe) or Benq 1655 (lightscribe too) ?

What dvd-burner would you recommend me to scan ?


Hi evilrulez and Welcome to CDFreaks. The LG DVD burners will not do quality scans (so far) so the 4166 is not an option for scanning your discs, The Benq 1650/1655 are good drives for scanning but will not scan disc burned in some other drives very well. Therefore I would have to recommend the Lite On 6S series drives as they will give you a good scan on all discs burned on all types of drives, They are also a very good burner. Hope this helps. :wink:

Hi crossg, your post is very nice, it gives me all the informations I was looking for :slight_smile:

So you recommend me the Lite-On 6S series, I will check out If the online-shop in France have these burners. :slight_smile:

Thanks :slight_smile:

I perefer BenQ 1655 or 1640.

Liteon for scanning - 6S series. BenQ for burning.

LiteOn 6S series (even though I’m well happy with my 5S series ones) here too :)…hope you find one!
