    Bhai get a DVD burner na. CD is a bhery bad option. ull regret it within months(two or three).

    dunno about DVD burners, but Liteon CD burners are the best beats almost all in all comparisons, anyone disagree ?

    Cd-writers cost arnd 1.5 to 1.7k. Liteon and Sony are best !! DVD writers are a good options since they burn cd as well as dvds and dont cost the world. DVD writers are priced @ 5.5 to 7k as of now.

    Hey I have Sony CRX 230e and i like it but it has got one problem, It will automatically slow down if it has trouble reading files. For some CDs (freashly burnt on other burner) it will come to a crawling speed of 2x. and WILL NOT READ AT HIGHER SPEEDs. works fine on other burners. that is an Issue so be advised. Liteon is the way to go. works damn well for Protected CDs and curropt ones

    Get an LG burner. It's quite good. If u can cough up the dough, then go for a Liteon DVD writer.

    I bought an asus writer a few months back - it's too slow - even at speeds of 40x it writes slower than my old sony used to write at 16x speeds :(

    NEVER, NEVER buy a samsung. those ppl don't know what quality means. I already have a dead drive (the second drive to go dead). Settle for an LG. Very quiet, very good per4mance, and light on the wallet.

    Whatever u do, dont go for Sony either. for ppl who dont have heavy reading to do, sony is pretty good, but it has a very nasty habit of reading its own burnt disks at 1x (or 2x when its not VERY pissed off). and that CD would work flawlessly on other drives.

    On many CDs it would simply refuse to read files (using CDCheck), tho the files are readable on other drives.
