    LG 12X ± DVD Writer DL
    (4120B) $95

    LG 8X ± DVD Writer
    (4082B) $87

    Pioneer 16X DVD Writer DL
    (108D) $115

    *Listed in CND


    Which one is a better deal? I know some games are going to come out in Dual Layer, but can LG do the job for backing up? How is LG bad (from what i have heard - not supporting some brand name dvd)?

    i just seen the pioneer 108 on pricewatch for $80. I'd recommend it, and i'm going to get it.

    I bought the 108 two weeks ago. Works fine. A little fussy with cheap discs, but no problem with verbatim, ritec, memorex, ect. I figure that dual layer discs will come down in price soon, like everything in this business.

    I don't see a big difference in price between Dual Layer ones and normal burners. I heard GT4 will be on dual layer... and I'm sure I will want a backup of that, that's why I'm thinking of getting a DL burner. Why do you say LG isn't as good as pioneer?
