This does and doesn't have to do with CDRW's, I wasnt really sure where to post this but here goes.
I have an AMD XP 1900+ on a Shuttle AK31 KT266A motherboard.
I have a Pioneer DVR-103/A03 DVD-RW, Plextor UltraPlex 40max SCSI CDROM on an Adapter 2930 SCSI Host Adaptor.
Until last week I also had the Plextor 12/4/32 SCSI CDRW. It finally wore out.
I was going to buy another but there very overpriced compared to most IDE burners. I paid like $450 for it when it first came out and now there like $200+ at hypermicro.com
I decided againest eather of the 2 12x SCSI plextors. My second choice was the Plextor 40x IDE. Seems slightly overpriced for IDE and after reading the reviews for the Lite-On drives here I ordered the 40x IDE Lite-On CDRW.
Right my system has the Lite-On CDRW, Pioneer DVD-RW, and the SCSI CDROM.
I never use my burners for anything but burning.
Now that I dont have my SCSI CDRW I'm thinking about given up my Plextor CDROM/SCSI card and adding a 16x Pioneer DVDROM to my computer.
My question is, is this worth it? I mean at the time i bought my plextor CDROM it was the TOP! CDROM for ripping audio cd's and just in general. couple years later would it be a big loss to give it up for the Pioneer DVDROM?
Mostly all i use my plextor for is installing games, ripping audio, and making image files out of my cd's..
Any input on the Pioneer 116/2 DVD-ROM would be great.
