    Not true at all. Sony DRU 820 is a decent drive and you shouldn't have any problems with it. Price should be Rs. 2400.

    Sony DRU 820A is rebaged BenQ 1670. I'd suggest BenQ 1650 (better that BenQ 1670).

    If you brand limited person go for sony dru 820a . Box should cost around 2.6k i guess, oem will cost 2.3k ..Else benq 1650 is a great buy. Also lg h10 a is too good at 1.9k

    ok .. I have got benq dw 1640 and lite on shm 165p6s ...frankly, for practical use lite on is better than benq .. benq doesn't like dvd -r media .. but works wonderfully well with dvd +r media .. lite on does well with both..


    also i just got LG GSM H10 N.. for 2000rs for a friend ... very good drive ..reliable, also it has 10x dvd+r dual layer and 12x dvd ram .. its a different thing that dvd ram is not available in india .. but its a solid drive .. burns any media under 6 minutes with good writing quality .. and only costs 2000rs .. i am getting one this week ...

    hey wizrulz , remember me .. how's ur benq working ? does it work well with those cheap dvd -r medias .. let me know ..

    I have a Sony DRU 810A. I have tried different cheap media (Rs.11-15) and even after burning several ones, not even single disc went waste.

    My BenQ works good with cheap writex media (DVD-R, 14 bucks) oh, its 1650 by the way.. The 1640 had some problmes with DVD-R and Dual layer disks.

    North Pole....n searchin 4 a cooler place
    i own a liteon.its blazingly fast in writing.but i am thinking about buying a LG now.because so many original DVDs fail to run in my liteon.My previous drives were all LGs n they gave decent troublefree service 4 many years.
    between sony n liteon,get sony.....lets forget all technicalities....
