As long as the DVD writer is 16X, then you will be fine.

Some people like to have LightScribe, but it's a waste of money. A good, basic, $60 DVD writer from BenQ would be fine.

What's the meaning of Dual Layer? Is it different from an ordinary DVD Writer? What is it's advantage?


How does Lightscribe works? I read it is a cd labeling am I right?

Ive been choosing between Sony and Lite-On.

Ditto.


I also have a DVD-recorder for my television, made by LG. It's excellent for taping NFL.

You can get a TV card for your PC, and record television to DVD.

Mine did too. They were the standard OEM edition, but still works the same. Very easy to use installers as well.

LG is also affordable; i got my DVD burner's on sale at the time.

I have Lite-Ons:
1 DVDRW DL (16x)
1 CDRW 52x

both of them are great, no problems. I would definitly reccomend tehm, theyre inexpensive and have solid performance.

No reason to go with an overpriced sony.

adn burning success has to do with the blank media as well, so having a 100% burn rate doesnt say much (IMO).. I could be wrong, but thats my experience.
