Re: Hard Drive Deals
said by urbanriot:Um, back in the days I'm talking about, no DVD burners were $35, not even the piece of shit drives I alluded to. We're talking 2003-2005ish. $89 was a cheap drive back then.
They were definitely as good as the premiums demanded for the people that utilized the premium reasons for buying them. They weren't necessary for you, thus too high for what you need.
I wouldn't have spent $89 on a drive when there were $35 alternatives if the money wasn't worth it.
And I stand behind my statements about Plextor and the fact that I don't believe that any of the "features" of those drives was any better than a well-researched lower cost alternative, particularly since I actually did of disc copying in those days and knew what I was dealing with chewed up discs and farting around with bitsetting, overburning and all sorts of other fun things that most people never knew about. My choice, as was the choice of many other people in the know, was Pioneer. I can't remember if it was the DVR-103 or 104, but it was one of them and I'm going back ten years or so to remember the exact model. If you found a way to justify the higher cost of a Plextor drive back in the early 2000s, good for you. I still think you paid too much money and nothing you or anyone else can say to me will convince me of anything different.
