Which DVD burner is the best ?

By hotchile ·
I am in the market for a dual layer DVD burner. Not sure which one is best value & best features. The PC Mags seem to regard the NEC ND-2510A very highly but 2.4x burn in dual layer seems a bit prehistoric. Doe's anyone out there use this burner & how would you rate it ? Is there a better dual layer burner ? Thanks for your reply.

Sony had some problems with their units. Not sure if they fixed that yet.

I like the Pioneer. DVR-A08/DVR-A08XL

They will burn at 4x/2.4x

My Sony unit is workin flawlessly, it's the current dual-layer burner. Main thing is it reads and writes to pretty much anything you throw at it.

Thanks for everyone's input, all much appreciated and of help but has no one tried the NEC burner or something else that burns faster than 2.4 in DL.
Kind Regards to All.

I had one of the first Sony Dual-layer burners and I had a 1 in 5 success rate, making lots of drink-coasters. Suspect it was the individual drive, not Sony in general, but I replaced with Pioneer DVR-A08/DVR-A08XL - EXCELLENT! Not one Coaster! Burns 8x DVD-R media at 12x

I see the Pioneer DVR-109 is out now ...

I have always had good luck with Plextor drives, whether they are IDE, SCSI, or SATA. Plextor has recently come out with three different SATA DVD+-RW dual layer drives.

More thanks to all who have replied, good & bad views all help in making the final choice. I won't be rushing out to the shops just yet.
