I bought one of these last week Pioneer 108
I've not used it as a dual layer writer yet. My old Sony Writer died so I had to get a new one. This came highly recommended. I've been burning at 12x on bulk 4x media with out a problem.

Dual Layer Burner

I've been using the Pioneer 108 ($71.00 Newegg) and it works perfect. I've only used Ridata 2.4X DL media sofar. Matrix Revolutions burned perfect!

Here is a good one http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/specpage.html?NEC-ND3500
Cheap too
Its also avalible in black.
As for the Dual disc question, it really varies but I heard around 50% of dvd players/drives could read them but it could depend alot on the disc quality and other factors.
hope this helps
Bought one of these just a few days ago, haven't had a chance to use it yet, but will test it soon. Once I've given it a few goes I'll give a mini review if you like :)

nec 3500 is the best, any of the nec are the best compared to any other brand (yes even pioneer) i talk with the people who write the firmware for them and every nec that came out they top rated it

Dunno why everyone raves about the nec 3500 its crap compared to the pioneer 108 and the LG 4160 (which I have in black).

So there you have it. Choose between the Pioneer 108 or the LG 4160

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
