    Depends on what you want/need it to do.

    Other than speccing SATA for my last few builds I don't have any special requirements myself...in fact, given the low cost of HDDs, most of my backup has been to a drive rather than a disk.

    As for speed, well, 12x, 20x, etc. sound great but I've never seen the media available for a reasonable price so it's not really a factor, IMO.

    DVD burners are commonly available in the $35 range which makes them almost throwaways- like floppies- so unless you have anything special in the way of requirements I'd just get what Newegg has on sale (assuming they ship to the stars...).

    I've put NEC drives in my last couple of PCs and never had one go bad on me.

    I'd obviously recommend them.

    One of them still runs great in a PC that I gave to a friend and the drive is around 5-6 years old.

    Actually I was just about to recommend an external DVD burner from this series. I purchased it off of this review:
    http://www.cdfreaks.com/reviews/Sams...Burner-Review/

    Almost 150 discs without a hitch (DVDRs with Imgburn using Verbatims)

    Curious as to why you say to stay away from them?

    # Can only read DVD±R media at 12x.
    # Can only read DVD±RW media at 8x.
    Writes at claimed 18x, but can't read that fast from the same media?
    Need anyone say more?
