I just finished off yet another samsung burner, I've toasted several liteons, getting tired of replacing every 4-6 months if I'm lucky. Biggest problem is the discs I've burned while it was dying and I didn't know it was yet. So according to ncix my choices left are LG and Pioneer. I can't afford any more bad backups arg.... Anyone here have good luck with those last two? And yes, I do burn 100's of discs on them.
