I'm looking for a new SATA DVDRW. I would like it to be a reliable CD and DVD scanner, and also a decent CD/DVD writer. From what I've read here, I should look after a Lite-On, but I can't find any around here. Only LG, Samsung, Pioneer and Optiarc. Then I saw that some Optiarc are made by Lite-On. Does this mean that they are reliable scanners? Do they need any crossflashing?

Which one do you suggest and why? I think the first 3 are original NEC. Maybe the other 2... Also, if you have any other suggestion, it will also be helpfull. Any help will be much appreciated! Thank you...
