its an ok writer i guess. im no expert.

you do realise that dvd+r media is harder to find, and sometimes u can pay upto 4x more than that of dvd-r media. but, if you have the money, why not .....

personally, if i were you, ide try and get my hands on the latest sony drive if you can find it cheap enough. it reads and writes both +r and -r media, so you cant lose either way.
or maybe even one of the pioneer range.

my mate has a +r/+rw dvd writer and he wants rid of it due to the fact he can hardly find media anywhere in our area, and when he does, its very pricey.

maybe it would be best to do a little reseach before you take the plunge. check your local computer stores to make sure you can get the right media at the right price first.

just my 2 cents

IF that is the model then steer clear of it as that model is the first generation sony THAT ONLY SUPPORTS DVD+RW. IT DOESN"T SUPPORT THE WRITE ONCE FORMATS. Here is a little help. DVD-R (write once) has the highest compatibility at about 90%. DVD+R (write once) is at about 80%. Both the +rw/-rw (rewriteable) are somewhere between 60% and 70% and the media is much more expensive. If you are doing either PS2 or Xbox backups virtually everyone on here will tell you to go with DVD-R format since quite a few people have had failures with DVD+R/+RW and the DVD+R media is generally more expensive. Did you find this on www.ubid.com as they are currently the only place I know of that still sells this out of date drive not to meniton that the drives are all refurbished and have a tendency to crap out before they are supposed to (not to mention the limited warranty). Get either a Pioneer105 or Cendyne105 (Cendyne is the exact same as Pioneer it just has the Cendyne label on the box) drive as these will cost you about $250 (unless there is a special deal going on them I got one from officemax after tax and rebates for $180). This also has the ability to write at 4x whereas the sony model you listed doesn't. If you want to buy a sony get the dru500a which has both the +/- formats and will do both of the write once formats at 4x but this drive runs at $350+ and unless the + format really means alot to you I would simply get the Pioneer105 (Cendyne105). NO MATTER WHAT DO NOT BUY THE DRU110A. Hope this helps.
