Which Lite-On drive should I get?



My Benq 16X drive is dying, I heard Lite-On 24X is a good drive, so going to buy it and replace the Benq drive.

I didn’t follow the news of drives and firmwares quite long time ago, so basically I’m clueless when I read some of the recent threads at here.

So I just want you guys recommend me a good Lite-On 24X drive, and tell me what’s the different between IDE and SATA drive. Thanks.
