    Are DVD writers worth the money?
    anyone reckon they're going to drop in price soon with dual layer writers about to come out?
    also, anyone recommendations for <£100 one out currently?

    See if you can get your hands on a pieoneer 106D OEM. They retail for around £95 in some small independant comp shops. Make sure its OEM, Some places charge up to £300 for a boxed retail. Ok you don't get any fancey cd's with software on it. But they got that kinda stuff on the internet i hear ;)
    Its a 4x -+ writer and a cd writer to. Never came across a dvd media it wouldn't write to.

    Seconding the Pioneer 106 recomendation. Will write to anything you stick it in it.

    Thirding the pioneer 106 - though don't stick toast in it, it won't write to that.

    Pioneer 106, purely for the hacked firmware which allows you to write dual layer 8.6gig dvds :D

    Hi there

    If you go for the Pioneer drive you should be able to pick one up for around £84.99 from eBuyer or Dabs.com (inc. VAT, exc. delivery). The drives are also available in black, if that's of any use in your circumstances.

    Kind Regards

    And as someone pointed out, theres cracked firmware out there that do this now. :)

    Edit. A06 and 106D are same drive ;)
