Yeah, I was pinching pennies hoping one day the Plextor would come down in 
price but I saw Greytech's ad for the Pioneer, got Pioneer and Plextor 
confused and by the time I realized the difference couldn't talk myself out 
of it.  Last I saw the Px708A was around $250.

Do you burn a lot of DVDs?  Any media recommendations?  I'm only using it for 
backup purposes right now.  I done all of my testing with Memorex DVD+RWs and 
haven't come across any issues, I also have a bunch of DVD+Rs but I don't 
recall the brand right now.
