Sparrowhawk do you have one?

We have four of the NEC models. They do exactly as they are claimed to do and I have no complaint - except perhaps we bought them when they were quite a bit more expensive than they are now!

I have not yet one, but I will go for it at this price.

I was tempted by 8X Dual-layer Sony only 10 days ago, but it was nearly 3X the price (it was £150).

Prices of DVD writers seem to be moving again, which is good for us.

Soon you will see 12X Dual-layer...

I think a 8X Dual-layer from a first class manufacturer at £68 cannot be a bad bargain.

Plus delivery too I would expect.

Two years or so ago CD-RW writers were priced well into three figures - my own TDK Cyclone 12x10x40 was listed at £189 - but now you can get maximum speed top brand models for £20 upwards.

It will be the same eventually with DVD rewriters - the technology is basically the same and there is no reason for the excessive price margins being sought by manufacturers or rebranded versions.
