those options are boring!

LiteON all the way.

I use mine for Movie "BACKUP's" and i had 1 coaster that was casue i used Nero (i hate that app) and i have literally over 1,000 movies that i have "backup'd" myself. Yes that number sounds alittle fake, but no, i am a DVD MOVIE MANIAC... and i am driving towards my goal of having every single movie out! lol there's not enough time tho lol.

Anyway, this LiteON drive i had for about 2 yrs? i think. I bought it when this bad boy was around 300 or so.. and now this damn drive is dirt cheap. and yes they make higher speeds and whatnot, but whatever

I use this drive burning @ 4x dvd-r and i use Ritek/Ridata discs... So cheap and work Amazing (newegg).

if your gonna put time into backing up movies or just making storage discs.. Don't always look the cheap way out, save your money if anything alittle longer and afford the best. LITEON!

LiteOn 811s is what i have...

and this is the newer version...

I haven't used LiteOn drives but I've heard good things about them.
I recommended those drives because I have both and haven't had a problem. Just for burning the NEC is great, but the BenQ with Lightscribe can burn a label on your CD/DVD by flipping the disc and using the laser, it's pretty cool.

yeah lightscribe without a doubt sounds cool... but i honestly don't think that technology is moving anywhere. The discs aren't that cheap and the time it takes i don't think its worth it.

Plus the main poster didn't say anything about lightscribe.

LiteOn is deffinetely the way to go for dvd burning... if you really want to spend the $$ then i guess stick with the plextor fans, but for the Price/performance ratio LiteON is unstopable.
