CD Duplicator Opinions
« on: April 28, 2011, 05:11:05 pm »

Our church needs to get a CD duplicator, we only need a 1:1 since our demand is low, but it is taking a toll on my personal laptop, and not to mention it is quite timely to rip and burn every CD.

My question is if anyone has any experience or advice on a decent duplicator.  the two models I have been looking at are the:

QD-DVD by Microboards http://www.fullcompass.com/product/267770.html

Recordex DVD-100 http://www.fullcompass.com/product/356845.html

I just purchased a 1:3 LightScribe version from this company. I talked to their tech before purchasing and he was very helpful. I record and burn 4 copies of our service each week.

From here, they look pretty darn similar. The Blurb about the Microboards seems more complete, and it costs less. Microboards is also the 500 pound gorilla in this market. A vast percentage of what people use is either theirs or based on stuff that is essentially a clone of theirs.

Add about 5 more target drives and you have the machine that we've been flogging at church for maybe 4-5 years now, sometimes doing 100s of discs per week. It just keeps on ticking and people figure out how to use it in about a heartbeat.

BTW, if you have the right burner in your laptop, it might be up to the job at hand. I have a client who is on the second drive in his laptop, but its about 6 years old and he burns dozens of discs per week.

I've been pleased with the 1:3 duplicator we purchased from DiscMakers.  Actually, it has an internal hard drive, so if you want to load your master onto the drive, you can burn 4 copies at once.  CDs or DVDs.  Of course, DiscMakers also offer units both smaller or much larger, with our without printers and robotics.  I've also been pleased with DiscMakers as a source of blank media and cases.

The Least Expensive and Smallest way to go is to buy an External Optical Drive (CD/DVD Burner), Just check to see which ones are compatible with your Laptop.  ( 6.2 X 5.6 X 0.8 inches, weighs 1 pound  and around $50.00 Dollars U.S).

Also beware that many Duplicators run only on specific operating system (NO MACS)
