I will be buying my drive seperate from my computer configuration since Dell
is not offering configured computers with both formats (+ -) as well as not
using Roxio anymore.

I was curious, besides Plextor, do you guys know other companies that
include Roxio products with their DVD burner drives? While I'm at it, a lot
of people have recommended that I get a Plextor drive, but according to
their site, 3 of them are not even being offered yet and 1 of them is old
technology.

Please advise.

Thanks.

The Plextor PX-708A is the current model.It is available from newegg.com for
$164 shipped.They also sell the version without software for a few dollars
less.The software version is Roxio Creator 6.Some other drives you might
look at are NEC 2500 ($90) the Pioneer 107 ($110).Both are 8x burners for
both - and + formats.The NEC is the highest rated drive on a very popular
forum.You then could buy Roxio Creator Suite 7 for about $80,and send in for
the $20 rebate.This is the full retail of the LATEST software.The included
software with the Plextor is an older version and is NOT as full featured as
the retail version!

Probably better to just buy the drive you really want without roxio and then
buy the retail (or whatever) version for $80. Usually the freebie version
in limited. Especially when it came from dell. No sense in buying a drive
you may not like just to get free crippled software.
