does anyone have one? they are pretty expensive but its looks awesome. are they compatible with a normal dvd player to play on your tv? like if you dowloadid a movie or show could you play it on tv?
you can already do that with vcd's but yea i would really like to get a dvd-r
I was reading an article about this about a year back in some magazine in the dentist office or something. I don't know how much the actual writers are ($600- $800 most likely) but the disks are like 20 bucks a piece and the rewritable disks are like 60 bucks. As of then they couldn't be read by all dvd players but I think they may have fixed that. I asked this guy at futur shop if they had any writers that could burn playstation 2 games and he was telling me about layers on the disks and how DVD-R's write now can only write so many layers but some Playstation games have more layers than you can write. So i't better if you wait and buy one in year instead of buying one now and one later.

yeah they are $600 but i read on some site about how they are supposed to go down. and the discs are liek $12 at best buy near my house. I just dont want to spend a ton of money and have them only compatible with certain dvd drives
from the impression im under they wont play on region 1 players whichis the typicall player unforutunalty
this is MUCH more complicated than anyone has made apparent. There is a huge standards war going on within the DVD community, and consumers would be best served by waiting a little while until things get sorted out or you might end up getting burned. (heh...no pun intended)
Tonight Tequila...TOMORROW WE RIDE
Thinking about getting rid of my VHS player for one of these. Any thoughts?
