I can't say anything regarding that specific DVD recorder since I'm a newbie on the DVD recorders. I can say I've bought a few hundred thousand dollars worth of computer equipment over the years and this is just my opinion financially. If you are going to get a DVD burner - will you use it at least once a month or a total of 10 times? If so, you should consider buying whatever people recommend here if it is say $60 vs $40 since if you amortize it over a year of use you're only paying about $2 more per month for it. While you may only keep it a year or two - will $20 matter much?
If you look, at my post/question and others I've seen some pretty good stuff on the Benq 1620(which I didn't know squat about till someone responded to my post and I did some googling). This goes for about $50 US 1620 pro. I'm just waiting to see if they release at 1640 in the US - from what I heard it requires a little bios upgrading but it should be a better choice for me than the 1620 should it become available soon.
