Go for Pioneer if you do a LOT of burning cos these babies were made to last.

I have a Pioneer 107 and a 109 that have burned thousands of discs sometimes they are burning non stop for hours on end day after day and they have never murmered they just keep burning.

In the past I have always gone for Lite-On but at the moment I have a Pioneer 109 and I have no problems with it.

It can be a bit noisy at times but otherwise it does the job that it's there to do.

I have a Pioneer 111D, a Lite-On 1693s, an LG 4163B and a BenD 1650. The Pioneer and the BenQ are comparable followed by the Lite-On and the LG. These are all in the same computer. My four hard drives are all SATA giving me enough PATA for four burners. I generally keep the hard drives full of movies. I have to clear a bunch out periodically so that I can replace them with different ones. It's a lot easier to copy a movie from the hard drive than it is to rerip it.

ive had some samsung,pioneer,sony,liteon,hp's and some no name drives..lol
my favorite which you cant find anymore. is the liteon 20A1S that drive can burn any media and do a top notch job while doing it.
alot of drives out now are rebadged drives from other manufactures.

i have 2 liteon ihas324's if you get the "Y" model it is a rebadged NEC. which is a good drive in its own right and if you get the sony/nec/optaric AD7220a/s that is a rebadged liteon.

between my IHAS324-9A model(a true liteon) and my Optaric(NEC)AD7240s i wouldnt trade them for anything.except maybe a old plextor 716a..lol
