    Go with the nec 3500, or better yet, the new nec 3520. You can't buy a better drive, and it's CHEAP. In the US at least. ~$64 for the best burner on the market. You can set the booktype, burns beautifully, has a great compatability list, even deals pretty well with crap media. Its the burner of choice of the DVDD beta testers, it has its own firmware board. You can make a choice to buy a more expensive burner, but you won't be getting a better one. My vote is for nec :)

    im in Canada and i havnt seen any nec drives around. The new pioneer A09 i can get for 110 canadian. Do you know much about this drive? I just know the A07 was supposed to be a really good drive so have their new ones kept up to standards?
    thx for the suggestion tho ill see if i can find any around here.

    I think they're supposed to be good, but I've never used one, so I can't say for sure. You should seach around on this forum. There are dozens of topics on all kinds of burners.
