I have had Lite-On and LG, and can vouch for both.

LG is awesome, and I've never had a single problem with them. In fact, I picked up two of these: Newegg.com - LG Black 18X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 10X DVD+R DL 18X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache E-IDE/ATAPIDVD Burner - OEM for my new build.

Both of my drives are Lite-Ons, and they're working perfectly. Just make sure that if you look for one, its a +/-R/RW DL drive, and possibly with LightScribe, since most drives are only a few bucks more with LightScribe than without it.
