HELP: Which DVD burners to consider?


I am looking to finally buy a DVD burner, I am a newbie, I’ve never burnt a DVD before (though I have burnt many CD’s).

I know there’s a thread in this forum and I went through the last few pages but it’s not very helpful.

Maybe you can suggest the top 5 current DVD burners under $100 I should consider. I have very simple requirements:

  • price less than $100
  • a decent burning speed - is 8x worth it, can you find media for it?
  • support both + and - formats just in case
  • IDE internal
  • burn CD’s too as I will be replacing my current CD burner

Thank you very much for your help.
