Ummm . . . unless I missed something, the link that you posted is to a read-only drive. I think this is the link you want:

Sorry, but it's not. The drive at your link is the "INT 16X MAX IDE DVD-ROM DRIVE DDU161288" and has the following specs:

Quote:
Reading Formats: CD-ROM, CD-DA (CD Audio), CD Text, CD-ROM XA, CD Extra, Video CD, Enhanced CD, Karaoke CD, UDF & Photo CD; DVD-ROM, DVD-Video & DVD+/-R/RW
Media Types: 120 & 80mm disks, Audio CD's, Video CD's, DVD Movies; CD & DVD Rom Disks; CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW & DVD+RW disks
Modes: CD mode 1 & 2, forms 1 & 2; single & multisession disks; single & double layer DVDs
Standards: MPC Level 3, PC99, MultiRead & C-tick
It's a reader, only, not a burner.

The drive at the link I posted is the "INT DUAL-LAYER DVD BURNER DRU700A " and has the following specs:

Yeah, there's something strange about that link. Technically, Peter's put the correct link there, but for some reason it goes to "INT 16X MAX IDE DVD-ROM DRIVE DDU161288."

The weird thing is: Now click on the internal 700 burner icon on the right of that Sony page and bring up the proper drive. Keep the window open. Come back to the dvinfo.net window and click Peter's link again. Now it will link to the proper drive. Spooky.

Stranger is the fact that Paul Tauger's link goes to the *external* version of the drive, even though it obviously led him to the internal version.

Maybe it's something to do with the javascript on that page...

Anyway, the drive looks interesting. The real question is: if you already own a DVD burner, should you buy a dual-layer burner or wait for Blu-Ray? At least for me, that is...

Where does it say June 10th? The only date I've seen is May 17th for the deadline for pre-order.
