The Pioneer is not the only drive that supports DVD-R DL, the Plextor PX-716A supports it as well. But, besides supporting it, I wonder how long it will take before we'll actually be able to buy this media and at which price. I think the media will be very expensive and quite frankly, not worth it. As ripit said, for the price of one dual layer disc you can nowayds get four or even five single layer disc (and I'm not talking about cheap low quality media here). So, personal opinion; don't wait. Get a burner that's good at writing single layer media and if it happens to support dual layer as well that's a bonus.
