Thanks for the help guys, now after doing a lot of reading, the lite-on drive isn't my choice, but the new Pioneer drive is.
Arrgh, when there's one, there has to be another...
I think I'll go NEC though, the only thing the pioneer could have better than the NEC is slightly better ability in burning games...and I have a Lite-On 48x burner for that, so not a big deal. Plus the Pioneer drive costs about $50 more than the Nec.
Thanks for all the info and reccomendations!
