    All those are good. DVD-RAM is re-writable.

    I have always had luck with LG and Pioneer.
    However, now, I am a Plextor man.

    thanks for all ur replies... how ever i went ahead and bought a BenQ burner and was not to happy to find out that it only supports expensive media so now i'm planing to return it... and then i have 2 options

    1) Sony DW-D22A DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner
    2) LG-GSA-4167B DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner

    i heard both of these are hight quality burners... but cant deside which one to choose they cost exactly the same as well... so if guys have used any of these burners before please tell me your experiance cuz i don't want buy it then find out it has a problum... like i did with the BenQ.

    oh.. and I will be using this burner to back up data and for making dvds ... i do a lot of video editing using pinnacle studio.

    thanks in advance
    Cyber :)

    The one you linked to is slower. I think it's like the one I've had for a over year.
