I on the other hand prefer BenQ to LG any day (well... LG's got the whole DVD-RAM thing down pat, but other then that).
BenQ drives offer incredible media support (Not including the DQ60, which is only just TECHNICALLY a BenQ drive), offer nifty extra software that's almost on par with Plextor's PlexTools. And the media testing functionality can be extremely useful.
