External CD Burner

7 posts in this topic

I am planning to pick up an external CD burner for my computer.

Would anyone like to recommend a specific brand and model?

Thanks!

I bought a Samsung in 2014; it's worked flawlessly and I can recommend it.  The model I purchased is no longer made.  This is the current model:

Thanks Michael!  Amazon has this for $59, and says that the best selling Rioddas and Rodzan both go for half that.  Is there something I'm missing?

Go with what you’re comfortable with.  Samsung’s a great brand.  These Chinese knockoffs... you decide.

I bought the exclusive and pricey Z5STBT brand in Oct 2017 and have had no issues. Unfortunately it appears they are no longer available but at $11.99 I'm not surprised. I only use it to rip music off CD's.

Mystery solved.  Michael, the Samsung you recommended is normally $26, an entirely competitive price.  But Amazon is out of Samsung burners, and only one vendor is offering what you suggested, which is why he is demanding $59.  So I moved on.

Mike, the LG is currently $24, and I almost chose it.  Maybe I should have.

jcam, your Z5STBT is only $17, the lowest price I could find.

I decided to go with the Rodzon, because it was very highly rated, and because today there is a $7 coupon which brings the price down to $20.

So I'll let you know if I find out I bought junk because it was on sale!

Thanks everyone!
