Solved Help in picking a new DVD Burner....if Needed Tags: DVD Writers DVD Burner Storage Product Last response: August 27, 2010 12:47 PM in Storage Share trickynick August 25, 2010 10:32:18 PM I'm writing this post in case it's suggested I get a new burner. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E... What are y'all opinions on those DVD Drives? Will any of them work? Is the price difference from the 19.99 to the 25.99 one worth the price? $19.99 -- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... -- LiteOn iHAS224-06 -- 5 Eggs $19.99 -- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... -- Sony AD-7261S-0B -- 4 Eggs $25.99 -- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... -- LiteOn iHAS424-98 -- 5 Eggs $37.99 -- http://www.buy.com/prod/plextor-px-880sa-24x-dvd-rw-sup... Those are the ones I am looking at, I'm just looking for one that won't go bad like my current one...or what seems like it may have gone bad. Still trying to troubleshoot it in my other thread. EDIT: Added the Plextor link, as it seems they are a highly rated manufacturer, but just trying to see what you all would think.

The 2 $20 drives are OEM drives, and don't come with the cable. Any of them will work. I've used Sony and LiteOn drives in the past, and I had good luck with them. trickynick August 26, 2010 12:08:50 AM In terms of reliability, any of them will work out? I guess I don't really need the retail version since I could use use the cable I already have. Any partiular suggestions? I'm looking for reliability over speed Related resources New Build - Forum Decent Gaming Computer For $800 - Forum Need help picking FAST 24X DVD Burner... - Forum I need help picking components - Forum [ New Build] need help picking GPU and Monitor - Forum Can't find your answer ?
