Ok I have narrowed it down to 2 drives. NEC 8X Silver DVD+RW/-RW Drive, Model ND-2500A $71, or the Plextor 8X DVD-RW/+RW Drive, Model PX-708A for $109. I was leaning toward the NEC because all my drive are silver but don't want to take to much of a performance hit based on color. All I will be using the drive for is to back up my data and also to make backup copies of my DVD movies. Is it really worth the $38 for the plextor or is the NEC good enough for what I need? What do you guys think?
