    I just bought one of these for my G4 and love it.

    I left the original in the HD so I can use both drives at once. The LaCie uses Pioneer drives in their equipment. Blew me away when I did a system profiles and saw this:

    Just got the Pioneer...

    For an 8x burner make sure you get the Pioneer A07 same as 107. The 106 is 'only' a 4x burner. As long as you're running 10.3.3 it will be natively supported and you will be able to use it with your iApps.

    At this point it may not be worth the investment for an 8x burner since the media is still scarce. If you get 4x media you can only burn at 4x (or less). Seems like $100 and something investment to go from burning a DVD in 10 minutes to 6 or 7 minutes would be better spent on upgrading your 512mb of RAM to a gig or something that may be more beneficial? (my 2 centavos)

    Cheers,
