Which external drive? Plextor or Sony?

I want to purchase an external DVD recorder, and I have narrowed it down to either the Plextor 716uf or the Sony DRX-710UL.

They are both about the same price, but the Plextor seems to be a bit faster. Is it really superior to the Sony, or should I go for the Sony? (The sony comes with Nero, which I think is better than what the Plextor comes with)

Welcome to the forum,rondocap! :slight_smile:
Sony DRX-710UL is rebadged LiteOn SOHW-1633S. You can read about Liteons in the LiteOn forum. See there what is posted about LiteOns and compare to Plextors here. Then you can make a choice which drive is good for you.


head on over to the Plextor section and check out Tom Roper’s impressions of the 716UF.
