Default Re: Recommended DVD drive?

I have this one, and it's quite good:

Newegg.com - SAMSUNG Black 20X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 20X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA 20X DVD±R DVD Burner - OEM

Or with lightscribe: Newegg.com - SAMSUNG Black 20X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 16X DVD+R DL 20X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA 20X DVD±R DVD Burner with LightScribe - OEM

I also have a Lite-On, and Lite-On's have always been good to me...Sony and LG are also good brands that I've come across.

I just got 2 of the Samsung LightScribes that you posted and I'm pretty impressed. They posted without a hitch, as do most DVD drives do anyway.

Very good drives and pretty inexpensive considering the LightScribe technology. They're SATA too, so can't go wrong there. I'm all done with the gigantosaurus IDE ribbon cables.

Why do people like to lock or delete threads? The fourms are built on the fact that people come and look at the old posts and post their findings.

I said if the mods want to, its of no concern to me since I wont be visiting it any more, Im not demanding it be taken down or anything

some forums prefer to delete threads when the starter is done, others dont like it when ppl bump old topics, different rules everywhere
