    I'm looking to buy this, but I want to make sure it doesn't leave me with more coasters than working movies. Thanks in advance!

    Sony

    Sorry, that's just my opinion after having one of their drives. Very unreliable, I wouldn't get another. Expensive too.

    I found this though. I thought the option of capturing from AV source sounded interesting, but I don't have any experience of it. Couldn't find it on any US site yet though.

    Otherwise, I'd go for something on this page (apart from the Sony, obviously).

    .
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    ^ Thanks for the info, lynx.

    Anyone have any experience with this drive?

    It's the fastest I've seen and I've heard good things about Lite-On's in the past.
