Hi Wayne,

Seems good, but I would suggest waiting. That one is a refurb and at 4x speed. Prices will come down for the 8x speed versions before long. In this last Sundays newspaper ads for Office Max they have a new Internal DVD+RW drive with 8x recording speed for $69.99 after rebates. Course it doesn't have -RW, but the + RW seems what is best for most DVD players.

Also read somewhere that Sony is not necessarily the best pick for those who want to duplicate CD movies as from what I understand Sony is owner of a big movie studio here in the US and has a tendency to not like the pub reproducing movie CD's and makes it a little difficult to do so.
