Default 16x DVD+\-RW

I need a new DVD Burner. I'm looking for at least 16x dvd+\-RW and Dual layer compatibility...I really dont want to spend more than like $65 or so

Anyone recommend anything?

I was looking at a plextor: http://www.unityelectronics.com/product-product_id/3778

I hear that it isnt actually a plextor though?

What do ya'll think?

Gateway Machine - I know...I sold out...if I could do it over I'd have built like I used to :(
MS Vista Premium 32-bit
AMD Phenom (9500) Quad-core Processor 2.20 ghz
500GB hard drive
2 Free PCI-E slots x1
1 Free PCI-E x16

The plextor drive you are looking at has been refurbished, and seems to be a bit overpriced for a refurbished drive.

I use a 16x Sony dvd +/-RW Dual Layer drive at home, and it has worked nearly flawlessly. (I think I have had only 2 coasters in the nearly 1,000 discs I have burnt with it)

Anyway, you can pick one up for about 10 dollars less at newegg.com

I hope this helps!

$1 less for white

I recommend an LG DVD burner, they are excellent. I have one that has everything but LightScribe, it burns anything; fast too!
