Great drive, I have one... don't know about the price because I don't know what it retails for in Europe. Seems like a pretty good deal based on US prices.

50 pounds is an excellent deal. 50 Pounds is 82 USD.

LOL Im aware of the conversion rate... VAT, other duties and longer supply chain/distribution costs sometimes distorts prices in the European market.

Doing a straight interest rate conversion is sometimes off base.

Yamaha F1 is second only to Plextor, if not equal. Plus, it has the best software bundle: Full-up Nero and Dantz Retrospect (backup and disaster recovery software).

Unfortunately, Yamaha won't be making any more new CDRW drives.
