Iâ€™m currently looking to buy a new DVD-RW dual-layer drive, to replace my broken NEC ND-1300A. Iâ€™ve heard the NEC ND-3500A is good but Iâ€™m reluctant to buy another NEC with all the problems I have had with the previous drive.
Looking on ebuyer Iâ€™ve found a new Sony drive called the â€œDWD22A 16x Dual Layer DVD R/RW OEMâ€ which is selling for slightly more than the ND-3500A.
â€œSony’s amazing new DWD22A is the next generation Dual Layer DVD recorder for your PC that brings together all the popular formats in a single drive: DVD+R and DVD+RW, as well as CD-R and CD-RW.

Model No. DWD22A
Buffer Size 2MB

All looks good, but the problem is that when searching on google, this forum and Sonyâ€™s website nothing can be found about it (no information, reviews, firmware updates). Do you think itâ€™s so new the manufactures have still not put it on the website?
Has anyone heard anything about the drive and would you recommend it?
Thanks to anyone who replies.
