    I've got a LiteOn DVD_ROM. Serves it's purpose pretty well. A little loud though...

    liteOn is probably the best "bang for the buck"

    Except the Pioneer A09/109... it's flakey. Every Pioneer up to then has been amazing (I love my 108). However, as more firmware is released for the A09/109 the drive is getting better.. but way to slow for my taste.

    As for NEC, the 3530s are out now, so if you can get one that'd be my choice (until Pioneer straightens out), or at the very least the Liteon SOHW 1673 or LG 4163.

    Plextor, or LiteOn

    Plextor has always been hard to beat for quality, but they aren't the cheapest ones out there.

    LiteOn is the best 'bang for the buck', as they are a lot cheaper, and their quality isn't too shabby either.
