Thread: Best CD Burner Brand on the Market?

  1. #1


    This is building off my last thread started in this section that was about the SONY Spressa 40x burner, which I have been told is made by LiteOn. I've heard this is a good brand, but is this true?

    I've heard a lot of senseless brand devotion and brand hatred from a lot of techy friends of mine. I want the straight facts here.

    What is the best high-speed CD Burner manufacturer? If not that, what is the best drive at 32x or above?

    Please post reasons as to why certain burners are better, don't just give me cheers and jeers that have no rational behind them. Thanks guys, I'm sure I'll get some good answers.

    Best CDRW's are Plextors and LiteOn's.... LiteOn's have all the fancy features at very low prices (like less than 200 AUD for a 48x12x48), but Plextor is even better, and more expensive

    Liteon drives give alot of bang for the buck. Their drives are also used by other brands, such as Sony and Visiontek.

    LiteON make the drive that offers you the most from your money.
    Plextor/Yamaha make the best drives in terms of quality. Unfortunatly- they also cost double than a LiteON.

    Unless money is no object (lucky you) go with the latest Plextor drive. If your looking to squeeze every last bit of value out of your dollar, go LiteON. The only differences between the two is you will notice reading copy protected CDs is a little slower on the LiteON.

    I go with liteon personally (quailty for low $'s) but apparently the new plextors have variable laser power, but are sensitive to dust.
