Recently my pile of crap I/OMagic drive just stopped working. It still recognizes/burns CD's but not DVD's. And because of a few other recent problems with it I figured it was at it's end so I'm starting to look around for a new burner but like everything, half the reviews will say something is total shit and the other half will praise it as the best available. Through hours and hours of exhausting research this is the best I've been able to come up with in my price range. Plextor I'd appreciate any opinions on this drive or any suggestions for others. Thanks! Oh yeah, basically I just want something that will burn DVD+R or DVD-R at 4X, nothing extravegant.
