a much better choice is the NEC 2500a. It sells for US $117 at newegg.com and burns at 8x. I have the 1300a which i just sold and it was great. 8x media is still to high but with it coming out the 4x will be dirt cheap. This is a dual format burner and i have had noproblems with NEC. You dont have to worry about the buffer underun with any of todays dvd burners.
i am no lazier now than I was forty years ago, but that is because I reached the limit forty years ago. You can\'t go beyond possibility.
