    Go for Sony DRU 820A. Its a good one nd decent perfomer. Some might tell Benq as the best perfonace. As DVD writers are concerned best perfomance means just one or two seconds faster....So what we should look at is the reliability nd servicing. So its the Sony ones that are sold at rapid rate nd As I own one It could read/write any formates ive ever seen.

    the best performer is the dvd wirters from sony's DRU series with a price tag of Rs.2800 box packed and Rs.2600 OEM pack.

    BenQ 1650 is still the best one out there. The sony 820/Benq 1670 have some solid burn issues and dont have the phillips chipset, hence lack the power. I just brought a 1650 and it works like a charm and damn stable with the buffer :)

    Box pack means u get the thing in Box (well Packed)
    OEM.....u get the thing just in a cover(no box)

    there is no diff in box and oem on the basis of the product. The only diff is the price...........as far as i know..............oem is cheaper

    Box pack contains the manual, cables, screws, blank media and software along with the drive. The OEM pack has only the drive and sometimes software.

    The model no. of Sony OEM is DW G120A nd also the look is different. But I think its better perfomer than DRU series. OEMs are not made by the pure manufacturer. OEM is Original Equipmrnt Manufacturer nd it does't mean dat it is manufactured by the original manufacturer.

    I own both DRU 820A nd DWG120A. But i like the latter. Good in reading nd writing.

    But there would be no problem on warranty.

    just google OEM nd u will find what it means

    Umm... NO! Who told you that? Ever heard of Quality Scanning? PI Errors and PI Failures? If not, you dont know *anything* about what *best* means in terms of DVD Writers. Sony DRU 820A is nothing but the BenQ DW1670. Sony absolutely *does not* manufacture DVD or CD writers. It just rebages OEM LiteON/BenQ drives. If you ask me, Sony just rips you off, by charging you more for the same thing. The BenQ DW1670/Sony DRU 820A is not based on the phillips chipset, so the write quality is not that good, and can never match the write quality of BenQ DW1650 (which is based on the legendry phillips chipset). Also, it does not support Quality Scanning. The best DVD Writer right now is most definately the BenQ DW1650.

    Ok, hmm as far as LiteON is concerned, there is a drive comming now days which is reasonably good.. Check out the "Super ALLWrite" by LiteON. Dont remember the model number, but its good. IMHO, dont go for LightScribe. Not worth it IMHO.
