I'm thinking of getting a DVD +/- R/RW drive soon because CDs are too small for backing up data from a 200GB hard disk. So I went to CDRInfo to read the reviews. That opened up a bunch of questions that I hope someone here can answer... Basically, I am considering either the new Plextor PX-716A or the LiteON SOHW-1633S. These are dual-layer-capable (DVD+R only?) 16X burners. The Plextor seems to be better from a "writing quality" standpoint, but the LiteON offers more flexibility (book type settings, etc.). If you're looking mainly for data storage and burning the occasional DVD-video disc (to play in a set-top DVD player), what format(s) do you want, and what kind of drive works best? It seemed the 16X burners out so far are immature products. Many of them had problems with "writing quality." Dropping the write speed helped with this, but then you aren't getting the 16X burn speed you're paying for. Is this a function of the firmware or the hardware? (It seems from the reviews it could be both.) Any thoughts???
