Time for our first poll...VOTE!

I'll go with option 2 "Ok, only if the price is right..."

I agree, only if the price is the same as it is now for single layer DVD media.

hrm, the poll is missing the selection I would choose:
"Waiting for more info and test results"

There are obviously still some issues with the technology, and it remains to be seen just how compatible the media will be with existing players. This is a key element for the product, and will greatly affect people's opinions of it I believe.

Dolphy, this poll hasn't got anything to do with technical details, neither compatibility, we assume technology will work as supposed too

If I wasn't a poor college student, I would have voted for option 1. But seeing as to how I can barely afford DVD±Rs I don't think I'll be buying 'em any time soon.

I neither care about price (it will fall really fast) nor the date when dual layer media hits the market.

All I am interested in is write quality and compatibility so at this time I am rather skeptic since media and write device manufacturers didn't even manage to bring 4x single layer DVD writing quality to a general acceptable level.

So there is no answer for me in that poll ...

I will choose the first option in compination with JeanLuc's post since the quality and the combatily is beyond the money you spent only once to buy the writer.
The media is another issue

There is one: "Not interested at all..."

What you say its more or less correct, even with quality 4X DVD media and the apropriate burner you can have quality burns, the basic problem would be how long the media will last...

I wouldn't say that I am not interested in DVD-9 ... my personal opinion is quite contrary.

But from various media I have checked out with my LiteOn 411S (thanks god I sold it over EBay and got myself a NEC2500), even unquestionable quality media like YUDEN000T01 has it's issues with several write devices.

I feel that manufacturers are moving along way too fast without gaining real experience in DVD writing as it was the case with CD-R some years ago. I know that DVD writing is a far more demanding task towards media and write device quality so I feel the need for some slowdown in development towards more thorough tuning ...

What kind of sense does it make to produce a 4x write device that will fail on 75% of all media, regarding PI/PO and, at the same time, talk about 16x recording and Dual Layer DVD9 ? Not much, if you ask me.

LiteOn, as an example, stopped Firmware development of the LDW-x11S series after some 6 months ... that is a slap in the face of all people who bought these products and will leave them alone with nothing - take a look at the cdfreaks LiteOn forum ... even the hardcore LiteOn zealots over there are beginning to show skepticism ...

JeanLuc you do have some point here, I find the DVD recording speed race not very "user friendly", since most 8X recorders won't burn DVD±R media well...As for LiteOn, those are sad news, we all know LiteOn recorders are cheap, but not many users can afford paying $80 like every few months buying a new LiteOn recorder that is supported from LiteOn with frequent firmware updates
