Default Dvd Rw

I need a new DVDRW/CDRW Combo drive. I'm looking to spend under $70 w/shipping if possible but I'm willing to look at up to $100.

What do you guys recommend? Is lite-scribe worth it?

Thanks in advance!

Are you buying a new one to replace or go along with your current burner?

Here is a good one, currently the fastest they offer and a good brand.

I don't really think LightScribe is a big deal I've tried it, and it's hard to see the image on the disc. I think faster is better, you think LightScribe is better, everybody has an opinion. I'm just suprised that everybody is using it, didn't HP copywright it?
