Still looking for a DVD rewriter..?

Those who are still looking for a DVD rewriter may be interested in the fact I've just had the regular news e-mail letter from BigPockets with an excellent offer.

It's for the Pioneer DVR-107 8x DVD+/DVD-writer at a VAT inclusive price of £79.99 - also on offer are 100 4x Mirror DVD-R Prium unbranded disks at £29.99.

The 8x NEC ND2500 is only £67. Both drives are in OEM form only, but the basic Windows driver will be sufficient.

No - 16x is going to be the maximum. Otherwise the discs will start shattering.

No, they won't shatter. It will be that the technology is too much in the case of DVD burning, on what is basically a system originally devised to play audio CDs at 1x.

The fact that manufacturers were able to get CD-ROM drive read/rewrite speeds up to 52 and even 54x was a miracle of adaption over reality and took several years to achieve.
