    Hi,

    I can gladly reccomend the Sony DRU-830A. I have a 820A and it is working great and all media that I have used is compatible. Remember to buy boxed one. Yet to have a failed write job....!

    Other brands would be NEC and Lite-On if u can find one.

    You shoudl get it(830A) around 2300Rs boxed. Lite-On and NEC will be around 2500Rs. But not sure about availability.

    Close your eyes and buy the Sony (boxed) + bill + warranty.

    Spot on .BenQ has been rated to be the best in most reviews. But Lite-On is equally good , if not better .
    BenQ is a bit costlier . Lite-On-SHW-1635S ( ~ 2350) would be my pick .

    Avoid Asus, they have preference over better media.
    Go for BenQ 1650, if available. Rest LiteOn

    Even I would have bought a Lite-On but couldn't find the latest in stock. So went for a Sony, and had no problems till now. I use all kinds of media, from 10Rs local stuff to 25Rs Original Sony media. No problemo.
    __________
    And by the way, Sony DRU-830A can burn DVDRs at 18x... Match that!

    Benq was not available here in mumbai i searched each and every electronic shop in Lamington road. may be people don't like it and other majour problem is its service center which is in Banglore so i purchased Sony-DRU-830A-DVD
    i think it is the best dvd rw available in town! that is what expert says :)
    http://www.cdfreaks.com/reviews/Sony-DRU-830A-DVD-Burner-Review/Introduction.html

    do u know guys one of my friend has benQ dvd rw (2month old ) but when i gave him Tod cd was giving read error but i coppied TOD file from same cd >>on sony dvd rw and it coppied each and every file without any error :)
    i think it has great ability of reading scratch cd :)
    fully paisa wasol
    Price Rs2050 in lamington Road
    DVD writing speed 18X thanx to new turbo speed technology
    and it support almost all the dvd/cd format
    except blue ray and hd dvd :p

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    Now can any body tell me what is the minimum price of any blank dvd? and which is the best blank dvd for writing media? at economical price!

    ps: if u r in mumbai than do not purchase LiteOn or Benq as its service center is only in Banglore :(
