I'm also trying to decide what to buy! I've been reading a lot of reviews/user comments, and am leaning towards the Pioneer 106 at the moment - seems to have lots of positive user reports. The other choice is the Sony 500, but it costs more.
General consensus seems to be make sure you get dual format (+R / -R). From what I've read so far, it also seems that DVD burners are pickier with media than cd burners.
Also, have a look at dvdrhelp.com, they have a list of burners and user comments. Might be of some help.
Then let me know what you buy and whether it works - might help me decide :bigsmile:
