The Optiarc AD-7200 series are the first real NEC drives in years. They are pretty much your only choice if you want a real NEC drive, but fortunately for you, they are also very good drives.
And FYI, a lot has changed since you last bought a new burner. Lite-On now makes very good drives, which do a number of things quite well. Keep your eye on the about to be released iHAP322/422 (PATA/LS) and iHAS322/422 (SATA/LS) drives.
