Sorry about that. The DRW-2014LIT just brings back painful memories.
Seriously, if you're just going to use it to rip audio CDs, it will do fine.
One thing you need to realize is that about half of those are made by Lite-On. HP, Plextor, ASUS.. almost all of them are Lite-On rebadges. More often than not, you can just buy an actual Lite-On for less and get the same performance. LG and Optiarc drives have always been good. DAE speeds are usually a little bit less (40x) on them though.
