    Default Re: What's the best DVD writer for around $100

    I bought an LG, it's O.K, but not as good as the Pioneeer model I had previously. There is a review on a qhole bunch of writers from what I consider the most respected hardware magazine in the world here:

    http://www.atomicmpc.com.au/forums.asp?s=2&c=9&t=9764

    It's a shame that the magazine isn't New Zealand, but being Australian, the reviews etc. are for the same products available here.

    Yes I was highly considering buying this but according to the reply I got from "Xp computers" when I contacted them via their website the drive doesn't come with bundled software

    On the page I linked it says
    SOFTWARE
    A Software Installation CD containing Nero 6.6 OEM Suite 3 is optional and needs to be requested at the time of purchasing the drive.
    Just make sure you ask.

    Just for those who are interested. I've decided to order the "Pioneer 16x +- Dual 4x double layer DVDRW DVR-109 OEM beige w/NERO 6.6 $101+gst" and a 50 pack of 8x dvd-r disks from www.pbtech.co.nz
    total $150 plus shipping... not a bad price IMO

    Good choice! Stuff XPComputers - what do they do, take the bundled software out of the packages?
