I am looking for an internal dvd writer at this point, and want either the BenQ 1640 or 1650, whichever is better overall. As far as I’ve seen the BenQ 1640 is discontinued over here in the uk, and i can;t even find the 1650! Does anyone know any on line retailers where I can order one of these? I want to get the retail version after hearing that OEM drives often have a higher rate of developing faults. Can anyone help me here?
I bought an external sony dvd writer from pixmania in september last year and it seems to have a faulty case, not burning faster than 12x on any media (taiyo, verb etc) and so I am a bit wary of them. Has anyone else here bought a retail writer from pixmania and had any problems??
