hi,
Can anyone tell me why Plextor CDRW or DVD rom is much more expensive than a normal ROM?
Is the price worth for the performance ?

Plextor is the leading name is burning drives. Believe me, the expense is worth it and in my opinion they aren't that much more expensive. Plextor drives usually are faster when it comes to burning data. Plextor just does it right.

You can't go wrong with anything made by Plextor.

Except their condoms, I am still itchy.

On a serious note I do agree with grinch. Plextor offers solid hardware at a decent price. You get what you pay for with electronics and it shows with these guys.

Rule of thumb, and not to be condescending, if you don't know what SCSI is you are the lucky one to not worry about it. They made IDE and SATA DVD burners. If you have sata and a chipset (like the nforce4) that will support it, it is the absolute best DVD+-rw I have ever used. If you don't have sata or don't know what it is, just get an IDE one.

I personally don't think Plextor DVD writing drives are worth it unless you burn an insane amount of DVDs. Even then, you can get drives with similar performance for about half the price. Check out the Benq DW1640, it's a great drive for a great price.

I've used the Optorite drives, they are usually very inexpensive and work great. However, I did have some CD writing problems with their dvd burners. Also LGE makes some good CD Burners.

But I have to say with all those, once I went plextor I won't go back. Some of that TomK said was correct, if you don't burn an insane amount of DVD's then the Plextor might not be worth the extra money. Only one problem, oince I went plextor I STARTED burning an insane amount of DVD's. :-D

I just figured I would rather go with the Benq (which is just as good from what I can gather) and spend more money on better media. I burn a lot of DVDs and I like to burn on top quality media to insure I don't create a lot of coasters. I just can't justify the extra cost of a Plextor when my Benq does the same job for a fraction of the price.
