If you don't mind spending a bit more (lot more?), and would like to look further into the future, I am very very impressed with my Plextor PX-B310SA. It is a Blu-Ray ROM and DVD/CD burner, but it is fast and quiet. At $173 at Newegg.ca, you can buy a LOT of LG or Pioneer drives for the same money, but you do get Blu-Ray.
If I could ever find any more Plextor PX-716SA's, I would grab them. That may have been the best drive Plextor ever put out.
As to non-Plextors, the LG 22x SATA I have settled down and has been working well.
