    OT: DVD-Burner?

    Hey ladies, I\'m again in need of assistance.

    What DVD-Burner would you recommend buying? I\'m looking for one that writes fairly fast, won\'t die within the first month, and is reasonably priced. I know you can get them fairly cheap these days, but there are so many... or are they all pretty much the same?

    I\'ve had good luck with this pretty inexpensive Sony, around $100:

    SONY DRU530A DUAL 8x4x12x/DVD+RW 4x2x12x/DVD-RW 40x24x40x/CD-RW EIDE INTERNAL

    which I found for a very reasonable price at www. mwave.com

    The only real criteria I had when looking was for a name brand (hopefully for reliability) and the +RW -RW both, so I am no expert, but it seems to work very well (and quiter than most I\'ve heard).

    Hi Aaron, I\'ve got an MSI DVD burner that writes at 8x speed.

    I haven\'t had any problems with it.

    Also check Plextor 708. Long time the fastest burner. $220.

    Sony just released a dual layer internal recorder over here - the DRU700A, with an external one to be released in a month or so. It\'s regarded as \'next generation\'.

    \'Dual layer\' means you get double capacity on each disk - 8.5gb instead of 4.7gb.
    It\'ll burn DVD+/-Rs at 8x, rewritable DVDs at 4x, and CDs at 40x.
    Speed\'s pretty important when you get into transferring that much data.

    Very cool! I didn\'t realize we were that close to having affordable DVD-9 burning. Now we should be able to author DVD\'s with studio-quality video.

    DV Magazne has done some fairly extensive DVD writer reviews during the past months. I don\'t have them at hand, but if you can get the reviews it may point you in the right direction.
