    My Choice would be LiteON. They make very good Drives. ANyway, never go for Samsung. They do good marketing that's all.

    All the discussions on the topic rated BENQ as the topmost DVD writer

    I myself brought SONY dvd writer.
    Frankly speaking i would have happy with Either of the the two
    So i decided to go for the cheaper product on that given Day( day when i went to buy it )
    Sony was 2700 and Benq 2800 as on 19 dec 05
    The model nos i got was SONY DW Q30A

    He was giving emphasis to read errors. Considering that aspect I hope somebody will comment on the comparison. Who knows, maybe Samsung wins atleast in that parameter!
