Upgrading The DVD Burner

I’m thinking about upgrading my DVD burner to use dual layer discs. The prices have dropped to about $2 a disc, and are likely to fall fast throughout the next year. Maybe I’ll wait till I’m about to the bottom of my current spindle of 4 Gig DVDs, and then upgrade.

The LaCie d2 DVD+/-RW with LightScribe looks like a good deal at $175. Burning labels right onto the disc would be cool, and this model includes a full version of Toast 7 Titanium which I could use. I’ve been limping along with Toast 6 for the time being, since I totally don’t trust Roxio’s upgrade rebates. (They’ve cheated me on those before.)

Anyone have any experience with this drive?

    I like the Plextor 760A. It does burns at 10x on DVD+R DL, 6x DVD-RW DL, 8x DVD+RW, and 6x DVD-RW. Easy to use and they are reasonably priced.
