Buying CD writer
Posted on 2001-07-24
yesterday i was asking you about the HDD i should buy, and you have convinced me that IBM should be the right choice.Today i'm asking about a CD writer.
First i'd like to say that the writing speed isn't very important for me - the lower bound is 8* writing speed. The MOST inportant for me is it's reliability, and of couse the price. What do you think of a SAMSUNG SW212 unit? Is it worth buying? Its declared performances aren't bad: 12X,8X,32X EIDE interface, 8Mb buffer. Next i saw the WAITEC Saurus 12X,8X,32X,EIDE interface 4MB buffer and, as a last choice YAMAHA CRW-2100E 16X,10X,40X,EIDE. Which one would you choose from the above three? By the way, i heard that Plextors are good, but those on the price list, are too expensive.
As i said before, the reliability is very importat for me, so i'm asking if anyone knows if there are maybe any brands which have a bad "reputation" (i hope that the three units above aren't one of them :-)
