    If your motherboard supports SATA I'd recommend mine.

    Coasters can also be due to old firmware. Make sure you have the lastest.

    NEC ND-3540 is now available (not shown at newegg) with even greater performance, assuming you can find matching media at reasonable prices.
    .
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    hmm...just a thought but before you give up on the liteon have you upgraded the firmware...did you buy good media(liteon's are notorious for only liking good quality + media)..Have a look around the cdfreaks liteon section Going to work can't post much more but if you decide to upgrade the firmware I would suggest you backup your original eeprom before you do just incase(utility on cdfreaks forum).I highly recomend the codeguys firmware it really improves burn quality.Good luck Not sure but you may also look at going from a 1633 to a 1653 that may help thru firmware..Have a good long read in the liteon section of the cdfreaks forum...
