I have the lite-on. Burned well over 50 DVD's and about 75 CDs on it. Runs excellent for me and always produces great quality burns. Thats the one I'd recommend personally.

You can't go wrong with Lite-On. As far as optical disk drives go I think Lite-On is the best, I would go with that.

My buddy has the NEC. I really don't see much of a difference from mine except mine burns DVDs slightly faster than his does. Thats the only other one I've used. Read lots of reviews before buying and lite-on was always in the 2 or 3 slot behind more expensive burners so I'd recommend it still.

Well no matter what you get it will be fine I'm sure. Those are all good brands lol. Guess it's a win-win situation.
