Now that BenQ is no longer the “BenQ of old”, What Burners will you consider to buy / recommend in the future?
While I have 4 BenQ burners between work and home, and are my prefered Burner, I also have several LiteOn burners, and they seem to have been a stable, solid burner for me, and they also have a “hobbyist” following, and there are “tweaks” and “hacks” to improve and enhance the LiteOn Burners.
So while I prefer my BenQ Burners, my LiteOn drives have never dissappointed me. (My LiteOn Burners are all 1-2 years old)
Also, at work, I just got a Plextor PX-760A, and while I would never pay 100 bucks plus for a burner, the 760A is performing very nicely. Very happy with it, seems to work as well as my BenQ’s.
(Of course, I ALWAYS make sure that I am using the latest firmware, and look for tweaks on any drive that I own)
I have also heard that LG and Samsung might be good alternatives.
So, what Brands and Burners are yall looking at for the future?
Myself, I am still in a little bit of a “Panic mode” and I am heading out today to CompUSA, Fry’s, Staples, etc, looking for Norwood or IO Magic, or similar, to try to find a re-badged 1650!
(I looked for a similar thread before posting, but could not find one, so please direct me to another thread, if I missed this disscussion - Thanks).
