What are the best scanners? Benq? LG?

Hi,

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 ?

Thanks
Laurent

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!
