    Question Which DVD burner should I buy?

    Anyone got any thoughts on a quiet, stable DVD DL burner? I've been looking at this one:

    And is lightscribe really worth it:

    Lightscribe, well it's fancy but in my experience you rarely bother with it.

    Ive got the Samsung lightscribe burner you've linked above and dont have a single complaint about it. Its pretty quiet and has given me many reliable burns.

    For the price you may as well get lightscribe. I use it, admittedly not for every burn, but for stuff I know Ill keep I use it. Dont forget you need lightscribe media, not just any old stuff.

    I inkjet print my DVDs & CDs these days. Printers are quite cheap, media are cheap and it looks lovely until the kids get their soggy hands on the things
