Best USB drive on the planet

I am going to buy a USB DVD/CD drive before I rip all my CD’s, and I was just wondering which USB drive is the best one for DAE? Will it be totally stupid to buy a Plextor 750 UF or 716 UF drive? By the way the drive will ONLY be used for DAE (perhaps DVD ripping in the future) and some of the CD from my youth has a lot of scratches.

Thank you for your help!!!

Best regards Peter
