$215 is a good price… but i’d rather have a pioneer a06 for $183 (new, bare drive)… they even have 2 software kits you can choose from… $20 gets you; nero vision express, mpeg2 encoder, nero express, incd/packet-writingeasywrite reader, cyberlink powerdvd xp, cables, a dvd-r disc, & a dvd-rw disc… $39 gets you, recordnow/write dvd 4.6, windvd 4, ulead videostudio 7 se, ulead dvd movie factory2 se, ulead picture show 2 se, simple backup 4.9, 4x dvd-r disc, 4x dvd+r disc, 2x dvd-rw disc, 2.4x dvd+rw disc… and shipping is free… NEC is a decent name, but pioneer is better…
