[hardware,shopping,poll] DVD/RW PotD

Dear friends! I'm looking for a DVD+RW/DVD-RW IDE drive with dual-layer support. Please help me make a choice. Note that I will not use it for audio CD ripping (I heard NEC had some issues with CDDA reading stability), only as a backup and DVD copying device.

Poll #459048 DVD/RW

Which one to pick?

NEC ND-3520A
Toshiba SD-R5372

If other than which exactly?

Is It Worth Reading Employee's Email? Especially recommended for R-t managers.

If you're a manager and you want to know what your employees are up to, I suggest reading email as a last resort. Of course, if you're concerned that someone is stealing, or using your company to do something illegal or unethical, reading email may be your only trail. But if you want to check on what an employee thinks or how their work is proceeding, talk to the employee.
