^^Samsung was the worst in market until NIC started to manufacture their drives. I too had old samsung writers and combo drives which failed me all the time...but the new generation Samsung drives r the best.
Perfectly said.

I have had a pretty good experience with Samsung. I have two samsung DVD writers. Been (over)using them for 2+ years now.

They work fine with infrarecorder too. Which is important if you don't want to install the bloatware called Nero they ship with the drives.

To all the guys who are saying their Samsung writer is working fine, how many DVDs do you burn in a week?

I would vote for Samsung...mine is working fine for the past 2.5 years...for me Octoedge is a winner...erlier Sony game me lots of trouble..changed 3 drives in a year then dumped it...only problem with samsung is the tray not coming out in one click (after extensive usage)...ASUS is another good option...
I think there could be no parameters to judge the drives as the performance varies p2p. Though for me Samsung is excellent!! and I'll stay with it :)

Go for LG DVD Writer .Good Performing.I had no probs with it for last 3.5 years of use.

Ya I even have a Samsung old one but suxxx.sOMETIMEs Gives probs with Frontech CDS,DVD.

My sugg is go with LG

+1 for LG.. using for almost 3yrs no problem.. Also the latest one has features like protect DVD with password etc.. I used samsung and Sony before and would rate it as
1) LG
2)Sony
3) Samsung

also dont follow that it burns 22X etc.. Local DVD works best if you burn at 4X and 22X DVD i doubt available in market. And Ya i burn lot of DVDs to take backup of movies and datas and to burn for my cousins and friends.

If the thread is made for posting the contradictions then here is one more:
One of my friends bought a LG DVD writer last month and he's running from pillar to post to get it repaired/replaced and these LG people are saying that the drive is working fine...even i tested it on my machine..it fails to recognize double layered DVDs and till now it has not burnt a single dvd...so as i said earlier the performance varies and no one can set a landmark for any brand drives...choose any one and try it yourself..rest all is your luck...

I'm using LG for more than 3years. It has not even got a single complaint.

And i think it's internally so strong. I think a year ago, I've inserted a Digit DVD which is quite dirty and has physically boken a bit at begining of the disc. While reading the disc, The disc broken into pieces with a huge sound. I've turned off the system, and undressed DVD writer and removed all the chocked pieces. I've thought that drive would be gone. But it's working:shock:.. it's working even now!

Legen-wait for it-dary!
Drives from NEC/Optiarc are buggy... samples are majority of sony drives. They cant read DVD-Rs, unless a firmware update is done, which may solve the problem.

I have used Sony and LG....

Sony was better then LG....it was fast and reliable..worked for 2 years

Lg is sooo slow in reading discs...very irritating...but yup Lg is also reliable
