    My computer recently crashed (thankfully due to hardware so I didn't loose data) and I've ordered my parts but I held off on buying a new CD/DVD Burner as it is important to me that it is a quality part. I have a very large amount of media on my HDDs that I had been in the process of backing up when the crash occurred. My issue is that my old Roms are... well... old, and they do not burn efficiently.

    I've read a lot of reviews online but wanted to ask the knowledgeable community of Bit-Tech what they think is a quality drive that might be worth buying.


    Thanks a lot,
    sideburns

    anything but lite-on (they're loud) should be fine.

    Or if you're prepared sometimes to invest in Lightscribe discs then Scan are doing the LN28010 Samsung SH-S223L/RSMN for around £20 in retail boxed form.

    I've also found that the Samsung ODD website has an update to Windows 7 compatible Nero 9 software available for this drive (if it doesnt already come with it).

    thanks for the responses guys, as of right now I own a Plextor and a Samsung drive but both are pretty old. The read ok but they make a ton of noise and take forever to burn disks, most of the they don't even burn them correctly.

    I think I'll take the advice and go with another Samsung though

    I guess my main concern is I don't want something with known compatibility problems or a drive that comes with adware. I've heard people complain about a few LG drives that have put stuff on your comp and I definitely want nothing of that sort.

    I like my drive as it looks so plain and doesnt have the LG or samsung logo printed on the front. Thats my main reason for getting a song drive.

    I still run a Plextor 712SA. I like Plextor drives and they are smiled upon in the audio community for accuracy which I like.

    yeah I was a big fan of my old Plextor drive before it started to wear out. My only hesitation is that they tend to be almost double the price of other drives and I'm kinda broke (college and all that :hehe:)

    I think I'm going to grab a Samsung, my old one served me well
