Anyone have one, what do you think of it?

I'm thinking of buying it.

Do you need one??

The only real use I can see for having one of these is if you are making full length feature films with multi language dubbing and subtitles, director's cuts and all the other extraneous stuff that fills commercial DVDs - or making less than legitimate copies of course!

As a relative newcomer to DVD preparation for commercial use, I cannot see why I would want one of these - a 4.7 GB is quite large enough capacity for anything I could want to do. Things change, of course, and I may be wondering however could I manage without one in a few months time.

For backup?

Noooooo, don't think so - wouldn't trust it (or any other optical disk! Caught out once - that's once too many.)

I'm not waiting for blueray.

p.s. backups to second hard disk anyway.

Anyway back to the original question.

"i haven't seen any dual-layered media yet, so don't expect much feedback."

That was my second question because i can't find any.

I think the NEC drives can be a tad "picky" too.

'For backup?'....can 2 DVD's not be used and to hell with the cost of 60p?
