Not sure if there are external DVD writer's for less than $200. Buying a standard internal one and getting an external USB 2.0 or firewire casing will set u back around $200-$300 plus at least. Prices are still dropping somewhat though...
Perhaps buying an old/used and slow DVD writer(2X speed) for around $50 with the external casing will bring your total to around $200 or less. With any external casing, it's going to be rather bulky.
Personally had some problems with my TDK writer, firmware wasn't too stable. They should have ironed out the issues by now, and mine could have been a one-off case.

That's great. Prices have dropped by quite a bit from the last time I see...
Anyway, the upcoming COMEX should have some promos on dvd writers as usual.
