Can anyone suggest a Dual Layer drive to get?

I have a DVD+R at the moment and want to move to dual format, so though I might as well get a dual layer drive while I'm at it. Anyone have any recommendations or site to look at for reviews etc?

Cheers
Aaron

Hi Aaron,

In the latest Computer Video magazine, there is an article about it and different reviews on 2 burners, Sony and Lacie (I think?). There is 1 major downful at the moment with dual layer DVDs: They are not compatible in some new/old DVD settop players. They kinda have the same issue as what DVD-R had when it orginally came out many years ago.

If however you are using it for your own personal use and data backup, then there should not be much of a problem.

Thanks Ed. Yes I'd use the dual layer stuff for my own backup only so that's not too much of an issue.

I bought a NEC 2510 recently, I havn't used it with any dual layer media yet though due to the high cost. Here's a review: http://www.cdrinfo.com/Sections/Revi...9803&PageId=16
