cool cool thanks for all the help guys, sounds like Pioneer is the way to go for sure. Lol about the NEC, I've heard nothing but complaints about that thing!!

The NEC is okay provided you use High Quality media. There is a hacked firmware upgrade for it but it is anyone's guess as to how long your drive will last using it. Anyways with the price difference being so minimal between the NEC and the Pioneer it isn't worth it.

[B]...they are both great drives provided you don't try to use them as all-in-one units (read/burn) which you shouldn't do no matter what DVD Burner you get.... [/B]
So, u're saying to start backing-up you need to get two drives?

I'm saying if you want your DVD Burner to last for any period of time that you will definitely want 2 drives. A good DVD-ROM drive can be picked up for well under $50 now. www.avlogic.com has a 16x OEM Toshiba for $41 with free ground shipping right now and I know that you can find 16x Lite-On drives for cheaper than that. Not really worth it to put your $100+ DVD Burner at risk when you can pick up DVD-ROM drives for so cheap.
