I currently have a cd-burner and am wanting to upgrade to a DVD Burner. My current cd-burner is a Lite-On and I am very happy with the performance and compatibility with many media brands. I want compatibility first and foremost with my new purchase as I have been down the road with previous cd-burners where media brands were a problem. Lite-On is the first cd-burner I have purchased where brand type wasn't an issue. The 2nd thing I look for is speed - I want the quick burn times, BUT with the best results and also the best read times. Noise isn't really a factor unless it's to a point where I have to warn the neighbours it's just me using my pc and not a Jumbo Jet taking off in the backyard. Any and all suggestions are welcome.
