I have multiple computers, I all ready own 3 DVDR drives.
The simple answer in this case is that there are none currently on sale at the local Frys. This drive is for a friend/client that has to be up and running tonight.
If this drive was for me personally, I still wouldnt be too concerned with DL. Blank media is still what, ~$12 a disc? And still proving to be finicky? There are many quality retail titles that cost less than that. When I make a coaster out of a 10 cent CDR, I dont care. If I made a coaster out of a DL disc I would be pissed.
By the time DL media is a reasonable price the current DL burners will be obsolete compared to the newer ones coming out at that time. I will wait till then to be serious about a DL burner.
