Which DVD Writer to get?

I’m thinking the Plextor PX-716A or the Pioneer DVR-A08XLB. Or possibly the NEC-3500A or LiteOn SOHW-1653S, if I decide I don’t want to spend as much.

What do you guys think?

Get ND-3500A now and get GSA-4163B or DVR-109 when they become available at a decent price. The combined cost should be about equal to that of a PX-716A or DVR-A08XLB.

Depends on what you’re going to do with it. For instance, if you’re going to rip audio cds Plextor’s units always at the top. PX-716A may have some issues atm so I’d suggest that you wait a lil bit longer til firmware 1.01 is released if you find it interesting.

i have a 3500 nec ihave had zero problems with it, apart with clonedvd and a vob23 problem which i havnt got around yet had problems with my 2500 nec though
