View Full Version : Burner Recommendations

2006-11-12, 04:50 PM
Hi All: I'm looking for a recommendation for a new external burner with dual layer capability to replace my recently dead LG GSA-2166D. Please don't point me to the cheapest available model on newegg or whatever; I'm not specifically looking for a bargain, although that would be nice; I'm looking, rather, for an actual recommendation from someone who has, and is really very happy with, their burner, and I'd rather pay a little more and have a quality product than pay bottom dollar and have something that dies, like my LG did, after about ten months. Thanks so much!

Pioneer 111 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16827129001) Dual Layer burner (will burn any disc that does not have an error)
$31.82 today, but never more than $40

nothing specific I can think of. I have the DRX UL800... but that was bought a while ago and Im sure there is something better out now for around the same price
