and one reader a sony ddu1612
i just got a new double layer recorder and my question is which of my 2 older drives to keep
i figure i will be doing all my recording on my new drive
the sony drive has a faster DVD read speed which is why im considering keeping it (16x as oppsed to 12x)
the plextor drive has a bigger buffer (2MB as opposed to 512KB) and obviously it records whereas the sony drive doesnt
something else that probably shouldnt factor in to my decision but i cant seem to forget about is that when i bought these drives 4 years ago, the plextor was much more expensive (like $200 compared to $30 for the sony)
are there any other significant differences that im not noticing?
is the plextor drive just a better drive and the one i should keep even though the sony has a faster read speed?
thanks for your advice
