Default Which Plextor ?

K, so I'm assembling new computer tomorrow and gotta buy dvd drive. I wanted to get Plextor since everyone said they'r the best.
I wanted to get a black one so it will mach my case. So I decided on 2 of those, dunno really what's the difference between then. One of them says Serial ATA (SATA) and I dunno what it means. So here they are. Any tips on the difference ?

theres no difference betwenn a $90 plextor DVD drive and a $30 NEc or Lite-On dvd drive.

just get this, and where did you hear plextor is the best?

the plextor one, which is pretty much the same thing is $100.

benq drives are a cheaper alternative that have the same internal parts as a plextor. some of the latest plextor drives are actually clones of benq drives with a higher price tag (no not the other way around, plextor cloned benq drives). I have a dw-1640 benq drive (not the latest) and its pretty **** good quality and speed for cheap price. Before gettin your plextor check out the Benq 1650 or whatever the latest models are.
