Not supporting the DVD+RW format isn’t really smart. DVD-RW has two major advantages over all the other format’s: 1. Write speed is: 2.4x 2. It can be accessed as a HD(doesn’t need to be formatted when data is deleted/replaced) So definetly a no buy for me.

Made a minor mistake: DVD-RW in the above reaction should be DVD+RW.
