External DVD burner

Hi, I am looking for an external DVD burner as the one in my laptop is dead now:(.
I’ve been looking around here and some other sites and narrowed it down to these 2 burners:

Which one would you pick and why, or would you recommend me an other one?
I’ll be using it to play&write some CD’s and DVD’s (both Video & data) and some CD ripping.
