    Asus uses Lite-On guts. Don't be fooled. It's still a good, fast burner, but TEAC, Samsung, LG and Yamaha are more reliable.

    I prefer Yamaha. I've got a Yamaha SCSI CD/RW I've been using for about 3 years now and it still works like new. A friend of mine just bought the new 44x24x44 IDE drive and it works perfectly. Plus I think the Text on CD is really cool.

    I personally like LG, teac, and lite-on.

    I have had success with all of those brands

    I have used BusLink,Plexator,Lite-on,Yamaha

    The Bus-Link would not work with anything on the IDE cable with it. It only had one connection on the supplied cable also.

    Plexy and Lite-on I have had no problems.

    The Yamaha works good. But it is a 16X SCSI burner. It sounds like a helicopter taking off when you drop a CD into it. It vibrates like one also.

    Asus don't use lite-on guts.Asus are designed and built by Asus.

    Get a Asus or lite-on if your looking at backing up games.

    Yamaha or plexy for audio.

    Since when does Asus make optical drives from scratch? I think you had better check your facts. There are only about 5 optical drive makes in the world and Asus isn't one of them.

    They only thing Asus and Lite-on have in common is that they run a Mediatek chip set.Every thing else on the Asus is built inhouse.

    I have an LG, to my total satisfaction. In burning CD's that is..

    Yamaha is nice, but a little pricey.

    Couple weeks ago i bought a 40x Liteon burner.. it was cheap for the kind of speed it deliverd. But i bought it anyway.

    I don't think i seen a better burner or cd-reader before. It can read any cd i've put in it, burn at every speed and never had a failed cd.

    I would recommend Liteon, one of the best out there
