I'm out of IDE slots and rather not bother with an expansion card and I have some SATA ports open soo.. I need a SATA Burner. I wanted a Pioneer DVR-212DBK but they are out of stock everywhere I look so any recommendations?

I just got a LG h62l installed and the few test burns I've tried look promising. Best Buy had them on sale a couple of weeks ago for 50 outright so I decided to try one out.
The burns at 16x have been faster then my Samsung 182d at 18x and quality is pretty good but I've only done a few burns so far...
Might be worth a look as long as you have a good return policy if you don't like it.
I'm outa IDE slots too. I have used the SYBA IDE to SATA converters on my
drives with great results so far and it did work well with my 111 when I tried it too. There are also a few SATA and IDE add in cards that work with Opticals if you want to go that route.

Let me know what you think of the LH-20A1S. I just got one last week and haven't had time to play with it yet.
