Buying a dvd burner...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys

I'm in the process of removing all IDE drives from my system and going Sata only, because the clunky cables are pissing me off

Since all DVD-Burners are so similar I decided to go for a Samsung Super-Write Master, since it can 'overburn', burn faster then officially supported by the DVD.

However...
I can choose from these modals:
Samsung Super-WriteMaster SH-S223AB
Samsung Super-WriteMaster SH-S223C
Samsung Super-WriteMaster SH-222AL

If I view the specs they are all exactly the same and its driving me crazy that I can't find a difference between them. Just go for the cheapest?

Or if anyone has had a good experiance with a different DVD-Burner feel free to reccomend it.

*I posted this in the obselete forum first, I fail at reading stickies

First off,congrats on going sata.Those ide cable drove me nuts as well. I own a Lg gh22ns50 dvd burner and it's never failed me once since I have owned it.

Go for the expensive one.You get what you pay for.

I agree when it comes to dvd drives i usually spend the extra $5 or so to get a better one Ive had so many dvd drives die on me its not even funny the difference (atleast to me) in the more expensive ones longevity is well worth the extra cash

Also Ive had great luck with nicer sony and asus drives Ive had a couple samsung drives and have no real complaints either tho

imo, samsung and hp drives tend to be quieter than lg and liteon drives

for cd/dvd drives, ide will be the same speed as sata, but less cable clutter

if the burned disc will be used in a dvd player/wii/psx/gc/xbox ect.. burn it at 8-12x
if it will be used in a pc you can burn it at any speed (16-24x)
