My suggested burners:
#1) BenQ DW1640
#2) Pioneer DVR-109 (or)
#2) LG 4163B
The BenQ DW1640 is by far the most versatile and user friendly drive available, and also very good when it comes to burn quality. In my opinion, nothing even comes close in overall disc compatability to it either.
The Pioneer DVR-109 has MUCH better firmware support for media then the DVR-110D, which is why I recommend it next. It has superior burn quality to many drives, and on CERTAIN MEDIA, even better burn quality then the DW1640 sometimes.
The LG 4167 has lightscribe, and a few other advantages over the LG 4163B (faster DVDRDL support if I remember correctly). I'm recommending the LG 4163B as an alternative to the DVR-109 because it has good burn quality, but incredible speed! So depending on your personal focus, you might prefer the LG 4163B over the DVR-109 or BenQ DW1640.
The reason I don't recommend the LG 4167 over the LG 4163B is because I don't know if it performs as well.
Hope that helps!!
