I had enough of the internal burner of my MSI GX700 laptop and want an external burner.

Ik have only one wish and that is burn quality.
Wich external burner burns the best DVD+R discs ?

LiteOn eZAU220
Samsung SE-S224Q
Freecom 20x USB-2

This where the burners i found in local shops.
I used to have a BenQ 1620 wich i really liked before switching to a laptop :stuck_out_tongue:

  1. If you still have the BenQ DW1620, you could put it in an external enclosure.

  2. Of the drives you listed, the Samsung or Lite-On should be adequate. It would be preferable to find the older Samsung SE-S204x or Lite-On DX-20A3x/DX-20A4x models, but since those are probably not available anymore, it’s a tossup between the two newer ones.

Hi :slight_smile:
The Samsung is the better of the two IMHO.
However the Freecom could be a Samsung too.
Many of their latest drives, both optical & hard drive.
Have been Samsung sourced.
You need to find a model #.

Thnx,
The LiteOn DX-20A4PU models can still be found, is it better then the eZAU220 ?

Same for the Samsung SE-S204N

Hi :slight_smile:
If you can get the SE-S204N, then it is an excellent choice.
Just try & find (if cheaper) whether the Freecom is the same drive.
I know there are some knocking around.

Well, this shop says it got one :wink:

So i mailed them.

I found a hardly used BenQ 1621 external burner, is that a idea if i can get it for cheap ?

The Samsung SE-S204N is a bit harder, they have the newer model, the website isn’t up to date :frowning:

Hi :slight_smile:
The BenQ 162I is the same drive as the 1620.
For many one of the best ever drives.
A real hands on DVDRW.

Ok, I try to get it for cheap.
He’s asking 40 euro and thats almost the price of a new Samsung or Liteon :wink:


#10

no cheap price, so it will be the The LiteOn DX-20A4PU.

If also found the Philips SPD3900CC

Back then, BenQ en Philips where about the same, how’s the quality of philips nowdays ??
