Basic ones like LG and Pioneer do a really good job and arent expensive

i tend to always use sony or pioneer, as they are leading brands. although i have also used LG with absolutely no problems, and know of a few friends that use them with no problems. I generally try and go with sony as often as i can. With CD-rw these days, sony is as cheap as the rest of them so it makes little to no difference.

*shrug*. your choice. of course, there will be people with horror stories from every single brand. some with harddrives, video cards and every single other comp part/manufacturer.

yes, i think sony's the best. but pioneer is also a good brand. and so is LG. in that order (in my mind)
1. sony
2. pioneer
3. LG

i heard once that lite-on's were just rebranded sonys. any truth to this? i think it was in some tech deal, where they say generic brand (it was lite-on) and then they say (sony drive) or something, to prove quality.
