yeah, it's a good drive, and if the extra $ is no issue, i'm wondering why you'd pick the Asus drive over the Retail Pioneer A09 ?
(which is slightly better than the 109 OEM - faster ripper if i'm not mistaken, maybe a few more minor things. i don't know if the Asus drive is more like the A09 or the 109).
i would think getting the Pioneer Retail drive is better than the Asus, if for no other reason than better firmware support ?
