I've been doing research into which DVD burner might serve me best in a new system that I'm building. Also, I'm largely interested in just having a DVD drive in the system to support games that are distributed through that medium.
I'm interested in a combo drive that has the ability to make backups of my CD-ROM computer games, i.e. with EFM support, possibly making archival copies of DVD movies, and be an all-around good medium for system backups.
With that in mind, based on some reviews that I've read here and at Anandtech, I've narrowed the choices down to three burners:
LG GSA-4160B (Hitachi) not 16x write speed
NEC's ND-3500A (EFM not supported, included because its popular)
Any suggestions on which drive might be the best fit for what I'm looking to do?
