Hi all I want to buy a DVD DL writer to back up some of our movies after finding out with hired DVD's that sometimes just a small mark will stop them playing in our player. I have a Panasonic DMR-E85H DVD writer and would like to get a computer DVD writer that will produce DVD's most compatible with it. I also want to put home vidios on to DVD too at some stage.
I see in the reviews these DVD writers are best:
NEC ND-3520
LG GSA-4160
BENQ DW1640

Would anyone know which would be best for my player? The LG does DVD RAM. Would this be an advantage?
Thanks,
asdex

Fitted around 30 of these and haven't had a problem yet
No probs with the drives themselves, seems to write fine to a wide range of media and haven't had any DVD player playback issues.
They can also be bought for $90 incl gst retail
