Threaded View
Hello all, I am looking for some feedback on dvd writers. I am going
to purchase one soon. Of coarse I want the most bang for the buck
while keeping the price down. What should I look for, and which brands
to favor or stear clear of. Do most of these drive come with a "burn"
software package? Any and all inputs are welcomed, thanks in advance
for your time and efforts.-J

I like my external Plextor - a three year old model bought at a discount
when it was discontinued. Reliable and fast on USB, also has a FireWire
connection which I haven't used. It comes with Nero, but I use
DeepBurner instead. I tried the free version of the program, liked the
interface and ease of use, so bought the Pro version, which also burns DVDs.

I would recommend and external model in any case, there is IMO no
advantage to having an internal one, and the external is of course portable.
