Look at the drives in my sig. in order of listing and don't buy the BenQ. Unless you have some particular feature in mind any of them will do the job. I prefer the NEC 3520 of the available drives. The LG is also a very good burner if you have no problem with bit setting or don't use +R discs. List what you are after and I can give more input and be prepared to hear diverse opinions.
BTW, my highest priority when ranking drives is quality of the burn. And be prepared to take some time in making a decision and you will save a lot of frustration and money. Also be prepared to own two drives. Funny as it is, there is no one drive that will do it all. It is like estate planning, when you make a decision abot death every time you gain something you lose something. You have to decide what you want and what you are willing to give up. Or, you just buy one of everything and then gripe because they are all different.
