    LG4040B, does + and - @4x, or if you got $$$, the new plextor 8x. I've just never been a fan of the NEC writers, just from experience @ my last job. The Pioneer A06 is also definately worth a look.

    My Sony DRU-500AX is the best for me. It's a little bit old now, but they still sell it repacked with some newer software and gave it a different model number.

    It depends on how much you want to spend... the 8x drives are beginning to come out...

    HTH.

    do these DVD burners actually rip/burn movie DVDs? so you can rent a DVD from your local video store and burn a copy? if so, is it easy and simple like burning a CD?

    (i haven't been following DVD-RWs)
