I've had excellent luck with the Pioneers and they are cheap now. I hear the best is the Plextor but almost double the money..
I have the 109 model, this is the 110 that replaced it:
Good Luck

Word on the street is the Nec 3550 or the BenQ 1640 (i think that's the number). I had a Plextor crap out on me just out of warranty, replaced by the NEC. Club.cdfreaks.com forums should point you in the right direction.

AFAIK BenQs 1650/1655 with the newest firmware are great. The only diffrence between 1650 and 1655 is that 1655 has LightScribe.

i vote for BenQ 1640 or Nec 3550A

I have the Pioneer 110 and it runs like a dream - spins up a bit noisy but runs very quietly idling, and I've had no problems with it since I bought it. It also seems more solid than my old one (might just be me :rolleyes:).

I have noticed that lite-on drives seem to be a bit shorter than the other ones out there...

Are there any other manufacturers making drives this size?
