    I know this question gets asked all the time, but things change so fast the
    answer isnt always the same.

    So whats the best DVD writer for my PC at the momemt? In terms of things like
    compatability etc.

    Seems like there's the following around this price
    - Sony DRU-10A
    - NEC ND1300A
    - NEC ND1100A
    - Pioneer DVD 106

    Which one of these, or are there others you would recommend?

    Loz i have just purchased an NEC ND1300A from novatech for around the £100
    mark including delivery.

    fitted it Win Xp found it, and all went well. The supllied pinacle software
    is perhaps not to my taste, and I would suggest you download the newer
    firmware for it. It is stated to be a dvd+r and rw and -r and rw but i have
    only tried it with a +rw disk at this time. for the price I would
    wholeheatedly recommend this one. You may find faster, drives with better
    software but as for value not sure it can be beaten, by much anyway

    It was novatech's newsletter this week that prompted me to ask. :)
    Now they are falling in price to around £100 or less, seems it might be time to
    get one.

    Well I am leaning towards the Pioneer, as that seems the most widely recommended

  10. Odd, I paid around £110 for mine a few weeks back.. They also had the
    NEC 1300(?) for under £100 at the time..

    Just checked.. Should be a 'c' not a 'k' .. Mea culpa.

    The good news is they have the 106 for £99.99 inc VAT

    But do some research on them first. Many bad complaints on post-sales
    service. Whereas SVP and Novatech are generally held in higher regard.
