Thank you I have read the reviews and understood some of it. Reading them has caused me to review my own requirements. I am currently using a Pioneer 107. What do I want from a new dvd burner?
1. Reliability. Very few coasters, in fact no coasters. My Pioneer 107 has only produced 3 out of several hundred discs burned and those were caused by overoptimistic ‘on the fly’ burning from someone else’s scratched and finger marked discs.
2. Ease of use. I am getting on a bit. 43 in fact
I just connected the 107 to my pc and xp did the rest. I use Nero 6, DVD Decrypter, Alcohol 120 and DVDshrink. I learned how to use these pieces of software from helpful web sites. However I am at my limit. Talk about Mount Rainier to me and I am lost (is it in France?) no wait, a minute isn’t he a prince?
3. Price. My 107 cost me £80 several months ago. That is a lot of money. I will be lucky to get £20 for it. Do I really want to spend £50 on a new Burner?
The answer is yes I do.
That’s the problem. I have this huge desire we all share to upgrade. But I will bide a wee while and read these forums. You are smart people and I am sure you will all finally decide on the Pioneer 108.
