I would like to know what's the best dvd burner to buy? I'm also on an fixed income. What I need the burner for, is that I'm just about finished taking a course for Web Designs, and I need a burner to put my Web design on to ship out to get some work.

for less than 700MB a combo(burns only cd's) will do

for the best deals just go to newegg

for example
I select dvd burners then hit free shipping

Plextor is supposedly the best, but there also among the most expensive. The ones DaChew mentioned should do the trick nicely.

plextor has pretty well quit making drives

Models 708, 712, 716, 755, 760, Premium(2) are 'originals'.
Models 504, 740, 750, 751, 800, 810, 230, 240 are labeled third-party products.

there's a lot of the co-branded ones selling for 80$ with a 30$ rebate(if you are lucky) and you can buy the same drive for 35$

plex may give a little better support

people are not happy paying for a plex and getting an nec or something else

their last real drives didn't do very well tho

I've used NEC, Sony, LIte-On and LG. LG is the only one I've had any problems with. Maybe I got a bad one, but I'm partial to Lite-On. Owned several of them and never had a problem. :thumbsup:
