I think I'll wait before upgrading my 2X Panasonic. In a few weeks time the new 8X writers will appear.

Well, after a lot of umm-ing and arrhh-ing, I finally let the missus buy me the Plextor PX-708T3B with 8x writing.

I am hop[ing that this drive will be fairly "future proof" and am incouraged by the fact that i have yet to find 8 speed media!!

OK, at £160 it is on the high side but then again I have always found Plextor to be faultless!

What has she got in return? Well, try getting a 28" widescreen into a blasted stocking and hiding it till Xmas morning!!!!

Gawd - Typos galore and its only the 20th!!

I would normally fully agree with you over Plextor but my first CD-RW rewriter was a TDK 12x10x24 Vortex, a rebadged version of the Plextor of the same model name.

It went faulty within three months, TDK replaced it after first sending it FOC and back to its Luxembourg HQ; the second had the same fault not all that long afterwards and, this time, because the Vortex had been discontinued, replaced it with the then £190 CyClone 24x10x40, which was Samsung based.

Had no problems with the CyClone....
