very nice price!
I got a Nec 4x DVDwriter for that price 2 weeks ago

but it's no competition for a Plextor 8x

Liteon DVD Writer LDW-811S 118.41EUR

Not really something new, and not even such a nice price.

And I still won't buy plextor. (buying a 450 writer and never have it work longer then 2 months does that to you)

not calling plextor on-site warranty service is your own fault, not plextor's

I did, 4 times.
It broke down every time. I gave up since the last one broke down just out of warranty.
Fast on-site warranty, that's true. But what goed does it do if the drives won't last longer then 2 months.

www.cdrwinkel.com is selling some ,
i'm gonna try wtih soms riteks04 , they seem to burn at 8x on pioneers.

edit : since an overclocked liteon 4x tot 8x , cant write dvd-'s at 8x , it is pretty useless and i'm not going to take the little risk (for now)

edit2 : couldn't ressist , flased it anyway
now i have a 8x dvdburner for 101 euro
