I am not sure what the best one is, but I have had two HP (Hewlett Packard) CD Writers and they have both worked very well.

Plextor are reputed to make the best. I have a Mitsumi and have had excellent service from it.

Check out the hardware section on CDMediaWorld. That's where I found out about the Mitsumi. (Unfortunately, I've just checked and found the info available on CD-writers on this site is about 2 years old )

FYI, Hewlett Packard don't make CD-writers. They rebadge them. Most of their recent drives have been from Sony. I had an HP 7200i (Phillips) which gave me no end of problems, which has put me off HP.

I have HP (9500 series), and I've had no problems with it. It was easy to install and has worked like a charm for about a year now...

I don't use one, but if I did I'd go with the 40x Plextor. Their reputation for reliability is unmatched.

Thumbs down

It's a big thumbs up for the Plextor range from me! I've had Yamaha writers in the past but changed to Plextor 3 years ago. They offer a comprehensive 2 year warranty and are utterly reliable. I currently have the Plexwriter 24/10/40A linked to an Ultraplex 40max SCSI reader - superb combination!

I have an LG 16 x 10 x 40 CD-RW and I haven't had any problems with it. the guy at the computer store I bought it at said he'd owned an LG for 3 years and never ran into any problems either.

I have a couple of Plextors and have used Mirai/Sanyo and HP and all have been no trouble. Plextors have a good guarantee on this side of the pond as Barry has mentioned.
