Which DVD Writer is best?
Suggest for best DVD Writer. :roll: :roll: :roll:
SONY DVD writers r the BEST...
@ambrewz... dude Sony just rebrands and sells Lite-on and Benq products...
In any case... the Sony Dw G120 is a good buy... Its a rebranded Lite On 165p6s and this drive won one of the digit gold buy awards.. its cheap too bout 2.7 including VAT
BENQ DW 1640 -- THE BEST ONE..
I don't know which one is good, but I own SONY DRU-810A, till now it has not given me any problem.
What about LightScribe drives?? and how much do the LightScribe media cost??
as said by teknophobia, sony is a lite-on...but i think it looks better..lol
and everyone i know who has it, never heard a single complaint. the DRU-810A is said to be the best in its class, the lite-on won the digit award due to package content mostly..so thats not really important...the benq one has slightly faster read speed.
judging from common talk though i would definitely say the sony is the best
Don't bother with Lightscribe. It's overpriced, you can't find any media and it takes too long to burn a label. Stick to a standard Sony dual layer burner.
Liteon rules..Samsung is the most unstable. i simply could not get it to open properly.
LG DVD writers ROCK
HMM , abt sony dvd writers .. sony only sells drives manufactured by others .. like lite on and now days benq ..
SONY DRU 810 A IS NOTHING BUT BENQ DW 1640 - SAME HARDWARE BUT LESS FEATURES IN FIRMWARE ... I MEAN THE DRIVE IS MANUFACTURED BY BENQ ..
ALSO, NEW MODEL SONY DRU 820 A IS A BENQ DRIVE TOO .... BUT THE ORIGINAL BENQ IS NOT RELEASED YET ... BUT THIS NEW DRIVE IS BASED ON A PANASONIC CHIPSET WHILE OLDER IS PHILIPS CHIPSET .
NOW WHY U WOULD GO FOR SONY WHEN ORIGINAL BENQ DRIVES ARE AVAILABLE IN MARKET WITH TWO YEARS WARRANTY .
ALSO U CAN GO AND CHECK WWW.CDFREAKS.COM AND CONFIRM THE FACT ABT SONY AND BENQ DRIVES ...
I AM USING BENQ DW 1640 FOR LAST 6 MONTHS .. ITS ONE OF THE BEST DVD WRITERS WORLD HAS SEEN ... ALSO IT HAS LOTS OF FEATURES LIKE SOLIDBURN , MEDIA OVERSPEED , ERROR SCANNING , FREQUENT FIRMWARE SUPPORT .. the list is endless ..
i would only say that u can get benq dw 1640 ..
Well my friend has sony DRU-810A and it is working fine without giving ne problems.
i suggest go for liteon or sony.
One more vote for SONY DW G120A.
I got it and its working fine w/o ne problem!
Liteon is certainly the best.
Sony is good.
Dont know about LG.
But Samsung is worst.
I use Sony DRU-810A.....without facing any problem still from Oct,2005
but it was old...... now DRU-820A available.....and it has a 5x DVD-RAM suport.
So better to go for a latest drive
My LG drive has'nt given me any cause for complaint yet.
Lite-on or LG............
Never go for a Samsung one
Lite-on rules man........
