My 4 year old Samsung Combo burner has died.
Read many reviews in mags but emphasis in rating is mainly on speed, lightscribe, dual formating etc.
Often reviews are outdated because models are superseded
and replaced so quickly.
I create cds from favourite tracks on mine and friends cds. I am 65 and find hi tech confusing (only just mastered the VHS recording programme ).
Am considering buying :
Liteon LH 20A1P or 20 A1H or
Is Mt Ranier any benefit for me ? Lightscribe not important
and extra seconds in doing the job means nothing to me.
Want retail pack with installation instructions, cable
connections, beige/silver bezel, good software pack.
Automatic manufacturer update advice desirable.
I want burner/writer in above price range that is:
easy to install-use, reliable, accurately rips-records audio
giving cds best sound ( DVD less important ).
Don’t expect to use it much for movies.
Must fit tower slot occupied by old Samsung Combo -
40mm x 147 mm.
Based on latest tech data, their experience and my info
Would the experts please advise me on best
burner-writer for my requirements.
Since my old one is dead, need to decide quickly
hope for your fast response.
I use Verbatim CD-R / RW 52x700MB,
Sony DVD-R / RW 1x-2x 4.7GB.
My 4 year old computer :
P4.3 GHZ 800 FSB.
RAM 512 x 400DDR PC 3200 Kingston.
Board :ASUS P4P800 DLX, i865 PE
HD. Seagate Barracuda SATA. - ST380013AS
Appreciate your patience and help.
