    I have many LG drives, they have excellent disk/format compatibility. I have three that expired but my children abuse them with constant movie watching, disks have been "fingerprinted" if you know what I mean!

    Most of the DVD burners with lightscribe are rebadged Samsung drives. They all work very good.

    Question

    Ok I have a really stupid question.

    Is there a advantage to having DVD-RAM as opposed to not have it

    EDIT: I got this one --> Samsung DVD Burner <--

    you really cant go wrong with optical drives form liteon or LG . lightscribe is cool but the disk's are still abit pricey . no need to spend extra cash here as most 30-45 dollor drives perform quite nicely . some mobo's dont play nice with sata optical drives , so be sure to ask ol'norton about this since he has more hands on with the GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3R then i .

    I've got a SATA LG GSA H62N, just because I've had many LG burners & never had any problems with them.
    The SATA ones are no faster, but the cabling is neater & you can disable the onboard IDE controller.
