A colleague of mine is thinking about purchasing a DVD+-RW drive. I was wondering what the current thinking was on which brands are better/worse. I noticed that the Plextor drives are considerably more expensive than other drives of similar spec by other reputable manufacturers (e.g. Lite-on, Pioneer). Whilst I appreciate that the Plextor name has a certain premium associated I was surprised to see such a difference in cost. Do the Plextor drives offer something that I don't know about?
