What is actually the best burner ? pioneer 107D ? NEC ND2500 or LG GSA 4082B ? I’ve got an Emprex but I’m not satisfied with it at all ? i’ve got cheap medias (Datawrite Red V2 AN35) but my Emprex does not even recognize them.
from what I’ve been reading, the best “cheap media” drive seems to be the NEC. I own the Pioneer DVR107D, tho. So I have no direct experience. The Liteon 812s is rated highly as a great all-round drive, but is best fed with quality media. The Pioneer wants decent media too, tho I haven’t verified this either 'cause all the media I feed it is quality This thread basically sums up the word on the street: http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=91659
Writing quality depends on the media used. MCC02 RG20 8x DVD-Rs burn better on the Pioneer than on the NEC. Taiyo Yuden TYG01 4x DVD-Rs, however, burn better on the NEC than on the Pioneer. Generally, lower quality media burns much better on the NEC than on either the Pioneer or LG. So my conclusion is . . . every drive has it’s own strengths and weaknesses.
