    DVD Writers what is best?


    wanted to upgrade my desktop cdR to a DVD writer

    Would anyone recommand a good one, both in terms of price and quality?

    Which one should i avoid to purchase?. Is the external better than the internal one?

    I have pentium four wiht 512 ram and would like to do some video editing.

    thanks

    (^~;?(It seems to me every makers have some issues.)

    As for former drives, some estimations are available on the web. But nerwer ones are unpredictable. Consider it is a kind of consumption and consult your wallet. I want to advise you not to expect it too much together with their DVD reliability.

    I have a couple low-end LiteOn drives that work perfectly. One was under $50.00 US new.
