Re: DVD Burner Reccomendations please

I have a predecessor of the Sony DVD burner you linked to (mine’s model DRU 710A). I have had it for almost 2 years and have never had a single problem and have burned over 100 DVDs and a couple of thousand CDs with it. It could not be easier to install (go internal), comes with 2 faceplates (pearly white and black) and it comes with Nero. What more could you want for under a hundred bucks? They were about $150 or so when I got mine. You’ll like it.

Re: DVD Burner Reccomendations please

I am on my second sony drive. I have also owned two Plextor drives. The Plextor is superior in every way. Expect the Sony to not last longer than 18 months of heavy use. The Plextor will last several years. The Plextor is about 2 times as much though which is why I bought the last two Sonys. I'd go with the Plextor if I was you. I had the 710a also.... they were $69. I would also say go internal. First Sony lasted about 2 years... second about 7 months. THe Sony also has trouble reading many DVDs... the Plextor doesn't.

Re: DVD Burner Reccomendations please

keep in mind that you may need room on your hd that's the same size as the disk you want to burn.
the softwear may have a backup function, you tell it which files you want to back up and it does the rest. it should split some folders between disks to fill them to the max. only problem is the last disc might only have a few files on it, so I try calculate how many disks I'll need to fill the last disk half way...keeping in mind that the file system takes some room.

I just looked on New Egg this morning and there is a very highly rated Plextor for $99. The guys at cdfreaks.com recently reviewed it. I think it is also the first 18x speed.

I was too cheap and may regret it, but I bought the Lite-On SHM-165P6S for just under $40 that they also did a good write-up on, mainly because my Lite-On cd-burner has been reliable and again because I'm on a budget(read: sneaking under the wife's financial radar ).

u wont be disappointed, check the 'customer review ratings'...
...even if u dont have a need/use for it yet, why not have the option/capability to burn dual layers and use +/-R blanks

That's gotta be a typo I think the top Pentium is only 3.73GHz at this point

[CPU: Pentium 4 - 1.4 GHz or equivalent (minimum)]

I did the same for similar reasons.

Question Can someone recommend a DVD Burner?

I have a pretty sizeable collection of boots I've gotten from here, Dime and a couple other places. This collection is starting to bog down the space on my hard drives and I want to be able to burn DVD's so that I can watch tem on my set-top player (no VCD's) so I was wondering if anyone could recommend a cheap ($40 - $60) but decent (will burn the stuff I download here) internal DVD burner.

Thanks in advance,

Dan
