Default Decent CD rom drive

OK, I'm sick of this slow *** CD rom drive I have in my new PC! I'm looking for a fast, DVD burner, for under, say, $60.

To match my case, it has to be black ... and lightscribe. Useful

Any suggestions? I found these:

It would be nice if you learned to use the hyperlink feature because Not everyone wants to click the links.

Look For optorite, they are Cheap but they are just rebadged Plextors, I can't seem to find the one I had in mind at newegg.

Yes it where you click the hyperlink button in post new reply you then type the product name/description, then you give the link, so people can just read what the product is instead of having to click the link you gave.
