I need to get a new burner for a duplicator that i have. it only takes IDE no Sata.
What i had in it lasted for years it was two NEC 3550A but sometimes didnt write dual layer discs.
It used to be 3 Burners but 1 died and i replaced it with a Sony AD7200A.
Now i need to get 2 more burners to put into the duplicator and was curious what would be the best option to get. i burn 2000-3000 dvds a year at the least so it needs to be able to handle a lot of work without dying on me.
I dont care if it is a new model or old model as long as i can find it online (ebay or other) for 50$ or less
Needs to write on Sony, Verbatum, TY, or TDK discs (which is all i use)

Maybe a Asus like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827135250 AFAIK, most all newer burners do DL. Not as much selection for PATA burners at present, so you are mostly limited to LG, LITON, Plextor and Asus, and probably a few others. The Plextor's are a bit more expensive, but no idea if the quality is any better than the rest.
thanks it doesnt have to be todays model can be old but built like a tank.
actually dual layer isnt that important
I've got three old LG drives still going strong. 4040B, 4167B and an H58N(not sure if that one is IDE or not).
out of all of those which is best? i have seen some for sale on ebay.
They've all been flawless.....the newest one (58N) is a SLOW ripper. It must be rip-locked.
I have found the most reliable drive to be from Lite-On. New Egg currently has 4 models for under $30.
