Hey guys–would like advice.
First–I read a thread on burn quality where users submitted burns and came up with the top 5 drives as far as burn quality. I wrote down the drives but did not mark the thread (would like to return to review the submitted burns. Any one here able to give me that link?
I would like to get a decent burner (both dvd/cd) that can burn decent quality and also a decent reader. What is the best out there right now as I see mixed reviews on almost every drive?? I would like the price to be $50 or less–which leaves the Plex out. I would like to be able to use Nero cd-dvd drivespeed for reading or/and also kprobe if I decide on a litey.
So far I am looking at–please feel free to comment–add a drive to look at, or any advice at all:
Liteon LH-20a1h (newegg has free shipping so it will cost me the same as an oem version (This should be the same burn quality as the LH-18a1p correct??):
Liteon 165P6s In deals section there is a link for these.
*Would love a BenQ but I just can not fine one.
A. I already have a Liteon 1673 @1693 firmware. It gives great burns on both DVD and CD but I think it may be ready to go as it makes noise on first seek on dvd media.
B. I also have a Pio 111d. Great DVD burns but not so good on cd burns. Not much of a reader either. I use TY media on both dvd and cd, so maybe it does not like ty cd media (any comments on this)??
Also–what is a decent ide card to use as I have both of my ide ports in use and would like to add a 3rd ide for more optical drives?? I looked at this card–what do you guys think:
Thanks for any advice/input/help!!
