Iwould also like to burn labels to discs " LIGHTSCRIBE OR LABELFLASH". Which one is the best allrounder.

Well.. if you want to burn labels and you're from the US, you're probably better off with the DW1655. I have yet to hear of any US companies offering Labelflash media so even if you were able to find a store selling the ND-4551A, you'd be SOL.

To me LightScribe is the winner in quality and contrast. Discs have for the moment a gold background. Blank DVD are currently MCC003.

Labelflash is not available yet, a Nero CD is needed (at least the LLS.DLL) and is not on nero.com yet. The background color is an awfull blue on Fuji (with Ritek mid inside : big crap) blank DVD (not available yet). The only positive thing in LabelFlash is the Disc@tatoo possibility on the data side of any media.

Both drives are good. But the Benq looks to be a better allrounder because of a bit better write-quality and much better error-correction.

LS and LF don´t matter to me
