The price of a Yamaha 16x10x40 is almost the same with a Plextor 12x10x32 if not cheaper. It also has a 8MB buffer memory. So.... burner experts out there, which one should I buy?
One more question.
If a CDROM can be copied in one burner but not in the other, does the fault lies with
1) software that comes with the burner
2) the burner itself
3) or that piece of CDROM (perhaps there is copyright protection?)
The Yamaha is not as good a rewriter as the Plextor 12X/10x.. But the Yamaha is a better writer. It is also louder at full spin than the Plextor. But considering you can get an OEM version of the Yamaha with software still cheaper than the Plextor 12/10/32, that's the drive I'd go for.
***check the jumpers 1st then check em again***
I guess I will go for a Plextor 12x10x32.
Think the 12x and 16x difference in burning timing is about 2~3 minutes. Speed is not very critical to me as I'm an average home user. Also from the posts, I think Plextor is a more recommended brand.
