Default Need help picking a DVD burner

For about $20 more than the cost of a generic DVD Rom drive and a generic CD-RW drive I can get a Dual Layer DVD-+RW drive instead, but need help picking the brand and model.

In some other DVD burner topics I've heard the Sony DWD18A and the NEC ND-2510A mentioned. Are there any others for the budget minded that are worth looking at? I have Nero 6 Ultra for my burning software so the burner would need to play nice with Nero.

Thanks in advance for any advice you can send my way.

P4 2.8 GHz

integrated 6.1 MAX audio

I think the Pioneer 108D is the best one, it's a 16x burner with dual layer support
