    Good writer. Same as the 107 but supports dual layer (although the media is stil prohibitively expensive.

    I'd go for the NEC but purely because it is much quieter - The Pio writers sound like planes taking off when you put a disc in :eek:

    Same here - These are great reliable drives. At Christmas last year Computer Video Editing mag voted the 107/A07 the best DVD writer of the year.

    Agree, dual layer discs are way too expensive at the moment. Also they are unreliable when you try to play them on a standalone DVD player - mainly due to poor software for authoring the discs. But this should quickly change.
    I've not got a 'silent' PC, but certainly don't find the Pioneer drive to be too loud when in use. No more so than my other optical drive.

    Mark.
