Appreciate that, my info from local paper 'The Star' advert.

DVD rewriters are very little different to manufacture than CD-RW rewriters or CD/DVD-ROM drives.

The astounding fall in prices over the past six to nine months (from well into three figures to a third or less whilst specifications climb ever higher) is proof of that fact.

It was a case, as always, of getting enough people to buy the expensive first ones and then allowing prices to fall to more real life world levels.

Surely it's the bus drivers who are on strike?

A fare day's pay for a fair day's work....?

Naw, we say the buses are on strike in Sheffield. One thing we notice, it's much easier to drive in town with no buses holding job up.

I go to the Sheffield branch regularly as it is the closest one to my home. £40 is cheap! Hope there are still some left when I get there.

Now there's a surprise...:-)

It's exactly the same when the youngsters are on holiday from school and those early morning and late afternoon traffic jams are no more.

Time to consider staggering school run times me thinks.

PC World is doing a short term Medion DVD rewriter offer for £49.99 - current Aldi version is still £59.99.
