I can get a retail Sony DRU-500A for around $350 with shipping and everything included.

My question is, are DVD burners worth it now? This particular model can burn DVD-/+R and DVD-/+RW as well as CD-R and CD-RW. This model is also very hard to find, so I'm thinking that the price may not drop for a while if supply is still short.

What do you guys think? Is it wise to invest in a DVD burner now?

That seems a bit pricy for a DVD writer, and since I've had lousy luck with anything that says Sony on it, I sure wouldn't spend that much. FWIW, it doesn't matter how short the supply is, there are plenty of manufacturers racing to fill the vacuum, they'll only get cheaper. :)

Yeah I was skeptical myself because it's a Sony product, and I really don't like the quality Sony gives you for what you pay. What I like about this burner is that it handles virtually all types of DVD media.

Anybody know of any other DVD burners that can handle all types of DVD media besides this model?

it doesn't seem to make sense to get a dvd burner til there is a consensus on the media to use... even though this one "does it all" supposedly, if it really doesn't, you don't want to be stuck with the wrong format...

but if you got the dough, sure, why not? :D
