    I'm not sure about pricing but take a look at the latest Plextor drives, which in my opinion win hands-down, especially with their BURN-Proof technology.

    I believe they're up to 16x now but if that is too expensive then they do 12x and 8x models as well.

    I'd second the reccomendation for Plexwriters. I've used Plextors 8/20 and 8/4/32 drives and they are rock solid.

    I would also reccomend Yamaha and Teac drives, these three brands are generally regarded as the best in the business.

    Plextor ROCK! They are far and away the best optical drive manufacturers around. Problem is they are pricey. Anyway there latest drive can be found here > http://www.plextor.be/english/products/pxw161040A.html

    I would suggest you go for a IDE drive unless you have SCSI in your system already. With the burn proof technology they have there is really no reason to go for SCSI which are quite a bit more expensive.

    Other brands I would suggest you look at are yamaha, panasonic, ASUS and Sony.

    i've only used toshiba and hp drives and they both seem to do the job fine.

    i've read (on epinions.com) that the $200 usd sony spressa 4x/2x/24x drive isn't all that good. you might want to check around on cnet as well and see what other people think...
