or since you're a VIP at blockbuster and have all the games you've ever rented "backed up" on your hard drive :P

lol but i would say the best one is the Plextor PX-708A, it got Gear of the Year honors from Maximum PC

DVD burners are great. If i was shopping for one i would make sure that it is dual format ( both "+" and "-" discs can be read or written), and that it has an 8MB buffer. A lot of them only have 2MB Buffers.

As for brand, i'm partial to my Sony. I have burnned over 150 DVDs and not a single coaster.
