SATA Optical suggestions
 
as the title sez, anyone have any recomendations on a good cd/dvd Sata drive? doesn't need to be Lightscribe, and i don't see any advantages to Blu-Ray. (if there are, then please enlighten me). i play, rip some music, and i surf. that's all.
oh yeah, needs to be black.:biggrin:

I don't buy anything that doesn't support bitsetting, which means I usually stick to Lite-On and LG ... Lite-On has never failed me, although they are pretty loud ...

Oh and the first (and last) BenQ DVD burner I owned got thrown off my balcony for being a complete piece of junk ...
