Hi all,

Have finally got the bucks to get a DVD writer and have been looking at various models and there are far too many to choose from so a nudge in the right direction would be ideal.

I would like to have support for all formats and dual layer don't mind OEM or retail would be nice to have software bundled but no biggy.

Any recommendations

Thanks

Bought this one click here in PC World last weekend for £39.99 - usually £49.99 but was on offer - full retail with software. Works beautifuly, very quiet and has good reviews. Also has "live update" which updates the firmware via internet - interestingly, one update after installation and a further one released today.

One of the best and the cheapest. In fact one of the only two all format (DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW and DVD-RAM) 16x dual layer drives that I know of. THE LG GSA 4163B. £30 from Blankdiscshop.

....and the advantages of DVD-RAM - which only the LG and Panasonic writers offer support for....

Cheers for them will have a look I did come accross the LG model earlier and is one on my shortlist.

Also came accross the Pioneer DVR-109 click here the specs are on a link about half way down the page.

Any thoughts on this one

look at benq/lg/toshiba and your pocket which suits best.
