Default CD Burner

I'm going to upgrade my CD burner in my PC. Since I am transferring tape to
my hard drive I would like anyone's input on which burner I should consider.
So far the consensus is the Plextor and Teac burners but which models or any
other brands for audio burning CDs. I would appreciate any info on this and
thanks.

If you want to keep a good check on the quality of discs that you burn
then the Plextor Premium is the drive to go for. It is the only drive
available with official support for low level error rate and jitter
testing.

Cheers.

There's not much need for concern anymore. The last significant problem
with cheap burners was jitter, which is eliminated by the buffering process
in every DVD player, "shock-resistant" discman, and car CD player. Plextor
is considered the best, but unless you're burning CD masters at 1x for
manufacturing, I wouldn't worry about it.

Well, if you want to burn 1x, you're rooted with the Plex Prem - lowest
speed is 4x.

If your main aim is to transfer tapes to CD for domestic purposes, almost
any CD-R(W) is likely to be fine. Check out the computer mags for iffy
brands though - main problems reliability. Anything from a major brand (like
those you suggest) are certain to be fine.

Default CD Burner

After losing 2 Yamaha burners and 1 Pacific Digital in a space of 3
years, I invested in a Plextor 16x8x32 aprox 2 1/2 years ago. Don't
waste your money or time ...go with the plextor. You'll pay more , but
imo it's well worth the difference. Don't be swayed too heavily by rapid
burn speeds though. I rarely burn audio at more than 8x...regardless of
the stability of the drive or the media speed. rarely I will burn at 16x
for quick one-off demos, but ideally slower speeds will create better
CD's which have seen less error-correction in the burning process.
However...if you can afford it, get a DVDRW/CDrw burner. That's my next
upgrade. the DVD storage will really come in handy for large audio file
archiving, and perhaps even get you started on some 5.1 workstation
based mixes you can play back on your home system...(assuming you have
or intend to get surround sound in the future.)

I know of 5 year old plextors that have never let their owners down.

I come from an IT background.... those things are great. A lot of
administrators in my old job had scsi external plextors.
