Another survey by Nielsen, from last September, found that CDs still accounted for 33% of music listening in the car, behind only radio and a device with downloaded music . Streaming music from a phone or other device with a data plan was far behind at 14%. The term “bad batch” is something that has only recently surfaced, in about 2004 when more and more people started to buy DVD burners from falling media/burner prices. The term “bad batch” is about on par with “my dog ate my homework” in the world of blank media.
As stated, the single sided LDs [I have an 8″ one] were more like big CDs. LD oxidation manifests as white dropouts in the video image, by the way. Hard tipped pens and chemicals can be abrasive and do damage to the data on the disc. Then again, a 2016 survey from IHS found that 75% of respondents listed a CD player as a desirable automobile feature, beating out Bluetooth, voice recognition, and a touchscreen.
Overall, the Asus makes for a fantastic choice as a DVD burner, it’s quick, works with all formats and burns quickly and quietly. Some burners like the ASUS DRW-24B1ST at Amazon are capable of transfer speeds up to 24x, but models like the ASUS Black BC-12B1ST at Amazon are perfectly suited to Blu-Rays. I am also a laserdisc collector and the idea of gluing two halves of an optical disc together was a bad one!
Our favorite SATA DVD/CD Burner for producing endless copies of whatever you need on physical media has to be the LG GH24NSC0B Super Multi Drive. However, if you need a case mounted burner built specifically for Samsung SH-224FB/BSBE. As an extra bonus, it offers E-Green Engine technology, which aids in automatically closing drive applications when not in use to conserve energy.
Energy consumption – If you are environmentally conscious, look for a burner that automatically closes drive applications when not in use to conserve energy. Asus devices, for example, come with integrated e-green technology that saves over 50% of power consumption compared with a standard DVD burner.
