Not sure if this is the drive on sale at Staples this week (Staples web site does not give Cendyne number) but Staples has a Cendyne DVD+RW drive for $189, less a $30 rebate with free shipping. You can also apply a coupon (coupon number 35700) to knock another $15 off. On my order tax was added (just short of $15) so after rebate it will come to $160. Seemed like a good deal to me. Should arrive in 4 days (I know its a long time but shipping was free!)
Hope you find this useful.

The drive I got in this Cendyne package is an NEC ND-1100A. (See lots of comments under that name.) $160 after $30 rebate at Staples. It's bundled with Nero (Express only), which can't encode MPEG-2 without an additional purchase. I was able to use the bundled Sonic MyDVD to author and burn the included DVD+RW disc, and it played on my Pioneer DV-414, but not on my Apex AD-600A. I'm wondering if my firmware upgrade for the latter was actually successful.
Just tried to burn a backup of a commercial DVD with VOB file >4GB. Had to use Nero Express with the Data Disc choice, not the DVD choice. But my Pioneer wouldn't play it, says "CANNOT PLAY." Maybe because I left a text file in the VIDEO_TS directory? Oh well, I'm learning.
