I will buck the trend and suggest the LG 4166. I have found this puppy can burn almost any of my high quality media and the quality is better than any of my other 9 burners. The MCC 004 16X burn looks like a TY +R 8X burn. Granted, there is no scanning, and slow ripping, but for quality burns this drive is the best.
No comments on the Lightscribe quality. I have no use for it.
