Don't listen to me. I just pay 35 to 79 bucks at computergeeks dot com and the office has a variety of 4 to 12X DVD recorders.
As the office and home has been putting these instead of CDRW drives for many many months, I consider such to be a commodity and would have to be really impressed to go over 99 bucks.
Tip: Get an unit with bundled software.
I am thinking about buying a new DVD burner. I have read the reviews on the Plextor PX-708A and PX-712A and like what I see. I have also looked at the Sony DRU-510A. Is double layer DVD technology far enough along to purchase one of those instead of the single layer Plextors? If you like double layer, can you suggest a good burner and reasons for choosing this one? If you think I should stick with single layer, which burner and why? Thanks for your help. chaplndave
