I’m a newbie looking for buying a new DVD writer.
Few models that are available in my country are:
- Lite-On iHAS124 (don’t know which revision)
- LG GH24NSD0 (LG one, also a Hitachi branded one)
- Asus 24D5MT (same as above?)
- Asus DRW-24F1MT
- Asus DRW-24F1ST
(not sure what kind of rebrands are those. there are samsung, lite-on and LGs?)
- Samsung SH-224DB
- Pioneer DVR-S21LBK, DVR-S21LWK, 221BK and 221LBK (confused about these but I guess they’re all QSI made)
I want a reliable&durable drive that won’t s**t the bed few years later.
It should be doing writes with good enough quality (even if not perfect). I don’t care about speed in slightest
I won’t burn audio/video discs just file writes. not doing dvd rips either.
Also the Lite-On is $4-6 cheaper than the rest so I wonder if there’s something especially wrong with it
