Thread: Which Dvd To Buy - Or + ?

  1. #1
    Like nothing is ever simple - I want to install a DVD drive on my system - I'm thinking drag out the old LG CD writer and install some flash beast

    Then I see there is more than one type of DVD + & -

    So my question for the panel today is - Do I really need a DVD that handles both types ?

    If I only need one type then which one ?

    I will probably use DVD for data storage - the huge disk capacity is actually my main reason for wanting one - so the most stable system for writing to disc is probably the one I'm after.......

    It would be good in the sense of compatibility to have a drive that handles both types. Both formats have no problems with data storage. There are minor differences between the formats that mostly deal with video and not data. Why not get the Sony DRU-510A ?

    Thanks for that - I am a tiny bit nervous of OEM stuff because without the instructions you have to know what you're doing !

    However I guess I can always look on the manufacturers web site.....

    That one looks good too ! Thanks

    Gee, I was hoping for simplicity, one machine made by one manufacturer sold by one outlet - now it looks like I will have to make a choice !

    If money is not an object. Get the new SONY DVD burner ($350.00). It features + and - .

    But for about 1/2 of the price, you are probably going to go with the + rather than the -. That's what most people are going with.

    Well this is not the case where I am. The -R is sold more here. Also that LG unit I mentioned above is both - and + for less money than the Sony.
