New Sony AW-G170S burner

Irony is winding up with the same brand you were whinging about. But it was the only one in stock and I wanted on that day, and it had Nero bundled. So there we go. $55 for a DVD burner isn’t all bad, especially when it’s relatively quiet (compared to my Pioneer 108, anyway), and crazily speedy (I confess I’ve only tested burning on CDs yet, no DVDs). It’s black and remarkably unshiny, but SATA and in need of smaller cables, which can only be a good thing!

A full review of a similar model is here.
