Just wanted to know if anyone could recommend a decent (preferably a budjet) DVD writer?
Many Thanks.

The Philips 106 is being sold by BlackDiscShop:

at £128 including VAT.

I've just ordered two of them (for someone else!) and have always found the firm to be excellent with first class backup service; this included a period last Christmas when it was closed for the holidays, but the owners still replied immediately to e-mail queries.

that'll be the Pioneer then :o)

bigpockets also has some cheap drives click here but i'd spend a bit more and get the one Stuartli mentioned.

+ is the way to go so dont panic about a dual format drive click here for a nice Liteon for £113. It is also the fastest to burn CD-R at 40X that i have seen a DVD burner do.

or you could be flash and have all 3 DVD formats in one drive for £174 click here

You are right re Pioneer - it's old age you know.

I also should have typed blankdisckshop, but the firm could also be known by forum members under the names of SVP Communications and

Nothing to worry about as I've always found the firm first class in every respect.

By the way if you use Proxomitron as I do, you'll have to engage Bypass otherwise you will have trouble entering order and payment details.
