Default Which of these 2 DVD drives?

Considering they are both so cheap I probably can't go wrong, but anyone have any input on either of these?

Newegg.com - LITE-ON Black 20X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 20X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA DVD Burner with LightScribe - OEM

Newegg.com - SAMSUNG Black 20X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 20X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA 20X DVD±R DVD Burner - OEM

I'm leaning towards Lite-on for the lightscribe although I haven't used lightscribe before and the disks seem to be pricey.

Thanks for any input.

I would go with the Samsung... LIght scribe is a technology that is over priced and take to long to burn on the disk.... but that is my thoughts

I have a samsung on my computer and it works great!!

Are you really going to use LightScribe? I think that is the only difference between the two. And if you are going to use LightScribe, I think you need to buy a program to design the images to go on the discs.
