Which Samsung Burner works best with Verbatim 2.4x/4x 8.5GB dual layer media? I also use Verbatim 16x DVD-R SL media. Which Samsung burner will produce the best quality burns for archival purposes?
If you can still find a new one anywhere then the SH-S203B does a great job butfinding a new one is like finding hens teeth nowadays. :bigsmile: The next best Samsungburner that is easy to find is the new SH-S243N people swear by it for excellent burns but I can't say for sure as I've not used one of them yet. I still have 3 of the SH-S203B's and 1 Sony Optiarc AD-7240S in my main system and 1 SH-S203B in my secondary system. The Sony Optiarc AD-7240S does a pretty good job but I still prefermy Samsung burners for DL media. :iagree:
Actually, I do have an SH-S203B, but it's installed in one of my other computers. I need a new one for another one of my computer. Are current generation of computers inferior to previous generation of burners for DL media?
Not necessarily. It should not make a big difference.In fact older models (not the 20x generation, but say models that only write 16x on SL media) usually will turn everything except Verbatim media to coasters.
Any suggestions on a current DVD burner that is comparable to the SH-S203B?
