This is my first post here and I’d like to say a big hello to all of you. I was directed to this forum by the good people at videohelp.com. I want to buy an external dvd writer and I have come across the Sony DRX-701UL double layer and Liteon 1633SX double layer also. What do you think? Costco has a the lowest price I’ve seen for the Sony dvd writer. If its good, I’d like to take advantage of this deal.
