What is the best CD Burner, in your opinion?

I’m thinking of getting a new CD Burner to replace my old Plextor 4/12 (I know, I know, laugh it up! :o ) I was leaning towards the Plextor 48/24/48. I’m looking for a CD burner that can handle all game copy protections so I can make backups. What is the best cd burner for this in your opinion?

Thanks in advance,
Maverick

Pc game protection:

  1. LiteON 24x& up
  2. Asus 40x or 48x

Audio:

  1. Yamaha F1

Asus is good for data back-up
but i would recommend the 40 speed or the 52 speed model.

I would recommend LiteOn 48x or 52x.

Any lite on 40X and up…they are great for everything. I can’t see spending the extra bucks for a Plextor or Yamaha unless you just like to spend money.

Literally any cdrw is ok for data backup m8 :smiley:

@Bluesky
I’ll spend the extra cash for a Yamaha F1 for my secondary pc m8.
This way I can beat “most” audio protections AND cd protection :smiley:

i mean Safedisk and Securom protection back-up wich is used by data (game) cd’s. :smiley:

and to defeat most audio CDs, just use a good DVD-ROM drive.
Most (including cactus) can be copied by DVD-ROM drives, at least in my experience (also with my plextor).

PS
most times use my Sony DDU1621 or Lite-On 12x, or Toshiba10x DVD-ROM drives for audio CDs (sometimes ricoh burner works too).

Though the yamahas do look nice (and I can by one here for only $10 more than a Lite-On drive)
