Interesting you should pick those three drives. They are in actuallity one in the same! Except for their firmwares versions and their price. So FW/$$ being the deciding factors, you should go with the BenQ! Enjoy it :D
Benq DW-1640
ASUS 1608P2 >> Crossflashed to Pioneer 110 -> RAM+Bitsetting+removed riplock+RPC1 :D

Boost Mobile stole my minutes, then would rather loose me as a customer than give back my minutes (thieves).

No need. The BenQ is a great reader.

Well the difference in price between a burner and a rom drive is like $10, so if you wanted a second drive go with another burner :)

You'll probably upgrade before you wear out the drive. At today's prices, they've almost become disposable.
