Are SATA DVD Burners as Good as IDE/PATA?

I tried to use the search to look for this but somehow it wasn’t working for me. The hits did not contain the term SATA, so . . .

A while back SATA burners were not so good. Has that changed? If so, are the same IDE models that are good also good in SATA?


Right now the name brand ones are essentially the same with the SATA’s having potential to burn faster due to greater throughput-eh!!

(Me personally - I’m sticking with my IDE/pata ones - mainly 'cause I already own them-eh)
