Which DVD writer for new build?

Looking at, for instance EBUYER (UK)
There are Samsung SH223 (and different letters after)
LG, Sony/Optiarc, Liteon.

A good scanning drive would be nice.

Lightscribe? - not sure I could be bothered paying the extra for LS media.

Quite taken with the labeltag “toy” feaure of the Liteon iHAS524, but not marked it as an essential, but a nice little bonus feature.

Got a decent Cdfreaks review, but didn’t do so well in Cdrinfo’s tests.

On the other hand, I recall some comment that the Samsung may be the best reader.

Also, don’t need blu-ray, not at current prices!
