Hi all,

I'm after a new DVD-RW, getting a little tired of my old drive(x4)and the time it takes to burn my dvd's (also can't seem to read some dvd's properly either).

Do you have any suggestions?

I was looking at:

NEC AD7170A 18x18 DVD±RW Dual Layer ReWriter -
- DVD+R: 18x, DVD-R: 18x
- DVD+R DL: 8x, DVD-R DL: 8x
- DVD+RW: 8x, DVD-RW: 6x
- DVD-ROM Read: 16x
- DVD-RAM: 12x
- CD-R Write: 48x
- CD-RW Write 32x
- CD Read: 48x
- Access time: 140ms
- Buffer Size: 2MB
£22

Thanks.

I have a NEC ND-3540 and a NEC ND-4550 dvd rewriter drive, never had a single coaster or problem at all with it, they have to be the best drives I have owned, I am not sure if they still make the models I purchased but I can definately recommend NEC drives, they are absolutely fantastic IMO.
