I would like to buy a BR writer. My question is simple: do all the models write BD-R DL or do I have to pay attention like for DVD burners?

All the products, from all brands, I found so far on some websites, eBay included, don't tell anything about support for 50GB discs, so this makes me think all support DL.

Is that true?

Thank you

Not all burners support BD-R DL. Most do these days but make sure you check before ordering.
