Yea..but how much are the discs going to cost? ...If there even out yet!
I been waiting to buy a dvd recorder too....I wish these corporations would make up their mind and stick with a format...gezzz

so around $250, that isn't bad...
plus, it will push the single layer burners down in price
But i was hoping the dash crew would make these first, aparently dash media is a lot more compatable in set top dvd drives
but i have been looking for a dvd burner.... mmmm....
i can't wait until plextor comes out with one =)
oh and on the price of the media... if you are planning on buying a drive, i would definitly get the latest and greatest... but not hop on the media right away, i can live with standard single side dvdr's... and wait for the price to drop :)

how much with Burnable DVDRs that are 9 gigs in size cost? I'd imagine it'd be way up there compared to the 4.7 gigers.

I am pretty close to buying a DVD burner...and from what people have been telling me...the Pioneer dvr 107 can burn Dual layer with a firmware upgrade.
Is this true....if so..I think I might go and get one..
Anyone else heard about this..do you think pioneer will release the firmware?

Aren't there dual layer burners out in the $150 range? I know there's a lite on drive that burns at 4x and can be flashed to burn 8x.
Also, Staples has rebadged NEC-1300 and liteon drives(Buslink) for $99 - 20MIR. Prices are dropping. :cool:

Maybe the title of this thread should be change a tad, as its not DVD-R thats dual layer its the new DVD+R9 format that is dual layer.
Damn cool burner tho...pity i just bought a sony dvd burner 2 months ago :cry:
