Compare the features/performance of the DVD burner since they might matter to you the most.

Like someone else might create and mail to you home movies on an re-writeable Blu-Ray. That's not saying this is a Blu-Ray burner only that it supports that RE media speed in reading. m 0 l xcmer June 10, 2010 11:00:06 PM I guess i'll get which =ever i can find easiest then, thanks allot! m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
