I have went through many 100 packs of Ritek 6-8X DVD+R with my trusty old NED 3250. I always got good transfer rate graphs from Nero CD/DVD speed.
However I killed it while trouble shooting some defective hardware.
My first impulse was just to get the newest NEC model from the same series, but instead I decided to select three drives and research each before purchasing.
I have an unopened pack of Ritek 8x+R’s so I probably want to avoid a burner which is known to have trouble with this media.
Also I was using the NEC 3520 in an Bytec USB 2.0 enclosure. I am not sure if some drives work better in enclosure than others?
Plus I might actually end up buying three different burners. One of each of the two PC I regularly use and a 3rd to go in the external enclosure.
I don’t playback burnt DVDs on any non-PC devices, but I wouldn’t mind having a burner with features that exceed my needs.
My question is
If your only DVD Writer died today what would be your top three choices for replacement and why.
but any general feedback on what drive to purchase would also be appreciated.
