None of the list below. Do you think you can get a Optiarc AD720xA series drive?
1.â€DVR-118LBK DVDÂ±RW x22 Black IDE LabelFlashâ€Ž-pioneer
3.â€DVR-A18LBK DVDÂ±RW x22 Black IDE - pioneer
These are basically the same. These Mediatek based Pioneer drives are not rated as good as their NEC chipset based predecessors.
2.â€DVDÂ±RW GH22LP20 x22 Black LightScribe IDE -LG
I own this drive myself. Very good with CD-R, average with DVD media. Unfortunately very picky with the interface.
4.â€SH-S222A DVDÂ±RW x22 Black IDEâ€Ž - samsung
Samsung's 22x drives aren't the best
Another option would be a decent Sata drive plus a PCI Sata controller card (preferred: Silicon Image chipset, non-Raid model or at least flashable). I'd then go for an Optiarc AD-724xS.
