I'm a bit sceptical about getting a DVD Writer. Am i right in thinking there is still no industry standard and has anybody any inside info on expected price drops on these. Don't want to pay the price and then find they've dropped soon after

No real point yet unless you need it (but that is the case with all technology!) - standards should be agreed soon I think.

The prices will certainly drop - but you should be more concerned about compatibility unless you want it solely for your own use on your own pc (I mean, not wanting to use the home created dvds on the dvd player under your TV).

But lots of people argue that standards are not so imortant either.

there are writers out that will write both of the major standards which i think is the way to go cuz each of ther standards have their ups and downs...all still a bit pricey though...
