The much anticipated SONY DRU-500A have just reached Singapore, with an interesting ability to read and write on both DVD+RW/DVD+R & DVD-RW/DVD-R media. SONY takes the risk out of buying a DVD recorder by bringing all the popular formats into a single drive. The amazing new DRU-500A burns DVD-R/-RW, DVD+RW/+R, and even CD-R/CD-RW discs.*



• Sony introduces Worlds First DVD±RW Drive
• Read speed : 2.4x DVD+RW/DVD+R, 2x DVD-RW/DVD-R, 2x DVD-ROM, 32x CD-ROM
• Write speed : 2.4x DVD+R/DVD+RW, 2x/4x DVD-R & 2x DVD-RW, 24x CD-R & 10x CDRW
• Power-Burn for buffer-under run protection on CD-R/CDRW
• 8MB Buffer Cache

I was considering a DVD burner, but finally i bought another fast CDRW drive, so cheap!! I think now the price for a DVD writer is still quite high, and formats are confusing. I'd rather stick on CD first and upgrade in the next year.

the price too......:D
However looking at the specs... isn't that impressive after all. Especially with such a high capacity disc... write speed for DVD is still 2 to 4 x... and CD only 24x?? Yes... we should all wait and see, like what Wai said.
