Help me choose: Samsung SH182D / NEC AD-5170 or AD-7173

I will be ordering parts for a new computer soon, the only thing left to pick is a DVD-writer. Since i will buy everything from the same store, i only have three writers in the good priceclass to choose from.

I dont have a clue wich one is better to pick. I just want a basic reliable writer with good writing and reading quality.

I'm not really familiar with all those models, but my first instinct was to opt for the AD-7173 since it is the newest and I would generally prefer NEC/Optiarc over Samsung.
