I recently got interested in a dvd writers. My parents found the plextor 712A at Costco which was price decently (for a plextor that is). I was reading about the NEC 2510, the Liteon 832 and the Benq 822A. I read the review about the Plextor and I like what I read. The one drawback is that it doesn’t support DL burning. Again, I know that DL disks are expensive and not readily available (for me at least)… but having the option is still possibly nice. I know that newbs like me post these questions ALL the time, and I want to apologize, but I still will feel better seeing a respone to my question. Basically, is now a good time to jump on the bandwagon, or do you feel that the new technology (DL) is worth waiting, should I get the NEC or Liteon, or take the Plextor? I can’t even really describe my question. Sorry.
