Following on from the original post, I am trying to work out the different Sony drives now. The DRX-820UL/T quoted here isnt on Sonys site yet is mentioned on several retailer sites (with little or no detail). The DRX-820U is on the Sony Style site, and is basicaly like the DRX-810UL but with DVD-RAM. The DRX-810UL compared to the DRX810-UL/T was the later came with software for the Mac according to the Sony site. So why did the badge the new model as DRX-820U, not UL, and what is the difference with the DRX-820UL/T? Is it again just Mac software?
Looking at the package contents listed on the sony style site it says the DRX-820U comes with USB and iLink cables. However the User Manual on the storage support site says it only comes with USB. I was going to go for just the DRX-820U model, but now im not sure whether I need to get the DRX-820UL/T, or even if there is a DRX-820UL model floating around (as I have seen listed on a few pages). Anyone know if there is a definitive list of models?
Slightly OT, but i was wondering if anyone knew if Sony might be releasing a new direct burner model which will have DVD-RAM now? I dont know and havent looked to see if anyone has commented on the internal drive of the VRD-MC1, but based on specs it was close to the DRX-810UL burner.
