    Default LG burners

    they are solid and dependable, my 4163B burns some of my prettiest disks,
    4165 and 4167 have come out since, but LG is still putting out new firmwares
    for this older model.
    on a lark I tested a media that it hasn't handled well at fast speeds with
    the newest firmware(1.06)

    these are Taiyo Yuden 16x dvd-r's

    it just improves dvd-r burning(at higher speeds)?
    It'll show up soon at all the lg sites.

    Many at CDF think that 4163 is the best; latest LG models are not so good.

    I was considering one of these, but I can afford only one burner (for now), and I was planning a plextor. Do you think that the expense is worth?

    @chewy thank you but if that is all that it does I'll be fine for now.

    @ geno888 All I can tell you is in my limited time doing this it has never been this product that let me down even with cheap crappy media.The mistakes have always been my fault.

    Are you referring to plextor drives?

    I am considering a new burner. LG is on the choice list, also because I'm real curious to try RAM media. For what I know they are many more reliable than RW media

    The LGs are terrific for burning DVD RAM. It is very convenient geno888. The ram driver doesn't get in the way of normal DVD operations either (unlike InCD).

    It is not at all useful for DVD-Video. But is bloody good in backing up data as anon says (including regular video files).
