    I'm thinking about getting a DVD burner and need help on which one to get. I want it to be fast, most likely 8x, and it doesn't need to be a combo drive, all I want is the dvd burning capability. The + and - crap mess me up so what ever is best please let me know.

    Price limit: ~$150

    Most can do it all now - I bought a 4x LG for 159 a few months a go. That was in CDN funds.

    advice, make sure your burning software supports it before you buy an OEM drive, my sony wasnt supported (except by NTI, which susks IMO) until just recently, so for a while I couldnt use it to burn DVDs

    I got that 8X NEC a couple months ago from Newegg for $116. :hs:

    No problems at all. Not a single coaster. $92 is a fuckin steal. Works good with Nero 6 also.
