Excerpt: Mi tercera grabadora despues de una Pioneer 104 y una Sony 500A, y estoy tan sastisfecho como con las otras. La primera grabadora de doble capa de Sony y la verdad es que para ser su pionera les salio bastante bien. Es un grabadora IDE interna. Como comentaba es una grabadora dual y de doble capa por lo que admite los siguientes formatos: CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD+R DL.
