I will be purchasing a DVD+RW writer by the end of the month, but I am not sure which one to get. The three that I've seen that are immediately available are from HP, Sony, and Philips. Pioneer has a DVD-RW drive, but it seems to be more expensive than any of the others, and the fact that it's DVD-RW as opposed to DVD+RW also means that it doesn't support newer +RW functionality. The main function of the drive will be video/VHS->DVD conversion, but I will also be using the R/W functionality for hard drive backups. Reliability, warranty, and the ability to purchase an extended warranty are very important. Does anyone have any experience with any of these drives? Because these drives are not inexpensive, I want to make sure that I get a drive with which others have had good luck. Any help will be appreciated.
