You can get a Pioneer DVR 107 8x for 129+GST down the road here (Eden Computers, Mt Eden). And a DVR 108 16x dual layer for 233+GST from the same place

What are the main diffferences between Dual layer and Single(?) layer?

What is Dual layer?

What are the features to look for before buying one?

Are they all multi-zone?

Cheers

Single layer is 4.7 double layer is 8.5gb. U get more on the DVD, but the double layer blanks maybe a bit more than the single layered DVD's.

No i dont think theyre multizone. If you just want a DVD for playing DVD's I wouldnt bother with a DVD burner. Just get a normal DVD player.

Well its better if u get one that supports both DVD+ and - Most DVD burners also do CDR, and CDRW's etc.

Some standalone DVD players may not like the format u use.

Well the speed a DVD burner burns DVD's at helps. Altho 4x isnt too bad.

I use a 4x burner here. It only takes about 15-30 mins on this PC to burn a DVD.
