    What would you say is the Best Dual Layer DVD Burner is?

    Do not try swaying me away from DL I know the media is expensive but i want a DL Burner.

    Is that Memorex 16x one good? Or should i go with lite-on?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    My vote goes to the new Pioneer 108 without question.

    Hi,

    True, there is DL media but you need a DL burner in order to burn it :)

    Not yet for two reasons:

    1. I'm not an early adopter as far as burning technology and prefer to wait until the kinks get worked out.

    2. The most important reason: Plextor doesn't have a DL model yet :)

    I recommended the Pioneer for the simple reasons that they're known quality and it supports 4X DL speeds. If the 108 is anything like their previous models it will be one of the best you can get.
