Which DVD Burner: 401S, 411S, or 811S?

If I was to get a Lite-On DVD burner, which one of these is recommended: 401S, 411S, or 811S? I am very happy with my Lite-On CDRW, but have been reading mixed reviews on the Lite-On DVD burners? Thanks for any input.

Is the price a concern? If not get the 811s if you can find it.

Price is not a huge concern, but if I can stay within the $150 range that would be ideal.

Well the 811s can be found for 149$ online including shipping!
What are you waiting for? :wink:

These three drives are internally identical, they just have different firmware.

Depending on your needs, you probably will be happy with any one of them.

Dont get a 401s. At least pay the bit extra and get a 411s.Not only do you get a dual format writer, but the +R write quality much is better in my experience, and there have been more firmware updates recently. The 401s hasn’t had an update for a few months.
