    If it was me, I'd watch Office Max ads and get a 4x Cendyne DVD-R\-RW which is actually a Pioneer-105. Usually you can get them on sale after rebate and coupon for around $129.00.

    I'd not buy the Panasonic one. There have been a couple of negative posts about it on here, which persuaded me against getting one.

    Plus, if it's the OEM version you are buying, if you spend a little more you may find you can get a retail drive complete with drivers and maybe even some blanks thrown in.

    I was deciding between the Panasonic and the LG GMA-4020. Although the latter was 20 dearer, I got the box, software (essential for the DVD-RAM driver) and DVD-RAM and DVD-RW discs as well.
