Default Question about internal optical drives

If all I'm going to do is burn cds, copy cds to other cds, copy cds to my hard drive, and maybe play dvd's, will this drive be sufficient? I'm sure it is, but I need a second opinion.

so long as you're only reading DVDs and not burning them, just CDs i would get one of the ~$30-35 drives from lite-on but if your burning DVDs for quality i would reccomend Plextors for ~$80-100

Get a LG. They last pretty long. I had an Aopen burner first. After burning 8 CD's. The laser gave out. The LG still didn't give out, I burn 5 CD's everyday or more. Get a LG, you won't regret it. lol do I sound like a sales person?
