Is this a decent dvd writer for the price ?

Yep i know theres loads of similar posts but the whole dvd writer thing is a bit overwhelming.
I want a drive that is pretty recent that can do "dual layer" whatever that is . my main use will be for backups of my (legal) dvd movie collection and for slide shows of my digital pictures for family use.
Ideally i wont have to pay too much,i like the look of this click here because i've had several liteon products which have served me well.
Any advice anyone on my choice ?

you will find that dual layer blank dvds are hard to find and hellish expensive at present. You will also need dvd copier software that will break the encryption on the dvd and backup to a dual layer disc. Does this exist?

So i don't need dual layer then, fair enough.
Does that give me more options ?

Pioneer 108 is a dual layer dvd writer.

So it looks like the Pioneer DVR-108 then .How does it compare with the liteon, disregarding price cos i can pick it up locally at mplex if the price\postage is the deciding factor.
