    Conclusions:

    LDW 401S DVD+RW Pros:

    • Very good performance
    • Cheap (around 100)
    • On par with the Dual format burner

    LDW 401S DVD+RW Cons:

    • None

     

    LDW 411S DVD+RW Pros:

    • Ability to burn DVD+ and DVD- media
    • Cheap (around 120-130)

    LDW 411S DVD+RW Cons:

    • DVD-RW is lacking/slow

     

    As the benchmarks show, the burners are very similar to each other except for the fact that one has the ability to burn DVD- media. So the choice of which is right for you comes to which has the features you need. Prices are similar to each other and are both excellent drives. A tip for the customer would be to buy faster DVD-RW discs.
