    lite on looks good , looks like has more functions than the samsung . Personally , i too have a IDE burner , but i dont think i'll upgrade it . coz thats the most unused component in my PC and not a lot perfromance difference . as long as its working its fine. I'll wait for blu ray burners to get cheaper .

    Lol. Mixed reviews all around.

    I was going to get an LG burner and really the only ones they had was a Blu-Ray burner for 156 (i think), one that has SecureDisc tech and the other was out of stock. :(

    Gonna try for an LG DVD-ROM in sata flavor.

    The only reason im getting them in SATA is to do away with IDE forever and to have less clutter.

    I went from this to this. Hoped I would gain a bit of speed in the move to SATA, it's also a tad faster is times. Never noticed any difference at all between the two. I never used lightscribe, but it's a nice feature if you want it, making samsung the best. I think they are all pretty much the same.

    Im not looking for speed advantages here. More so less clutter and better air flow.

    Yeah that was actually the main reason I did too. I got bunches of sata ports and one ide, and those ribbons take up so much space. But I was saying there isn't much difference b/t them, if you want lightscribe do samsung, if not whichever, they'll be the same pretty much.

    Ended up finding an LG sata burner on ZZF. So I wound up with the following:

    LG GH20NS15 20X SATA DVD Burner Black Drive Retail
    LITEON DH-16D2S-04 16X SATA DVD ROM Black Drive

    Ive thought about Lightscribe in the past before and to me it just seems like a waste because you have to buy special CD's and DVD's for them and it just isnt worth it. Ill stick to the good ol CD marker. :)

    Thanks for the input guys and gal. :)

    Crash if u haven't bought one already go for the samsung. They have the fastest write and read speeds and amazingly quiet. I own a couple of Lite-ons too, but my Samsung is great. Thats my two cents.
