of my builds. I've found them reliable and replaceable (when needed) and worth the price.
Note that optical drives are realistically only going to last a year or two at best, then you replace them.
I might check out Newegg for comparing prices even though Walmarts return policy is a slam dunk.
I want a burner to just back up digital pictures and maybe convert some old VHS movies to DVD. I have been looking at the SONY but while at Walmart noticed the Lite-On dual layer that uses all +/- formats. It also comes with the Nero software and some others as well. I believe it was $109.00 not a bad price and about $70.00 cheaper than the SONY. Will it hold up do you guys think? Thanks.
