Oh that’s right… since Plextor is still more expensive than most they must not be as good as they used to be. Same thing can be said for Benz and BMW. Why pay for a BMW when a nice Pontiac will do? I understand the logic. I don’t like paying more for no reason either.
But you see I have a reason. I’ve had at least 15 different CD burners and a couple DVD burners in my lifetime. All numerous brands. The only brand that ever lasted and performed the way it should was Plextor. I have never tried NEC, they may be very good. That’s why I told the guy to do some research instead of just listening to our opinions.
The brands I know suck- Sony, Memorex, Teac, HP, and pretty much all generic brands. I have heard good and bad things about Lite-On. They are the Wal-mart of brands. Good enough for 95% of the products you need to buy, but not 100%.[/quote]
Plextor drives aren’t made by Plextor, they will be made by HTC, Lite-On or some other big manufaturer.
In a recent test of 12 DVD burners including Plextor, the Pioneer DVR 110BK came out tops and it was far from the most expensive.
