zup peeps, I cant take it anymore.... I need to buy a DVD+-R/W....well dont need...just WANT one!

I was at BestBuy looking through their selections and was wondering what would you suggest based on your knowledge of the whole dvd burner world or what you use. I also dont want to break the bank, looking to spend a max of $150. I saw a BUSLINK 8x for $143.00. Is that a good reliable drive? They even have a LiteON and Digital Research 8x for $133.00....oh the options... would appreciate some input to help me in my decision.

thkz,

first look at pricegrabber.com
2nd either buy lite-on or plextor
lite on is cheaper.
then u can buy pioneer
then u can buy sony which mostly uses lite-on products.
then if u don't like any of those (which are the top 4)
the rest i'd say are mostly the same quality..

i had bought my lite-on 811 for $140 1.5 months ago
now they've true 8x i dunno the price. i have burned over 40 dvd's no problem at all!!

i was writing at 2x :) (bc of my bad media) anyways now i've upgraded to 4x media, it rocks 15min !!!

Sony makes some nice drives, as well as LG. I have a Panasonic myself and it has been very dependable.

I have a Lite On (I've used Lite-ons for about four years now) 8x, it handles all formats (+/- and DVD-RW), and I got it for $103 at Newegg.com. And I love it!
