    You may want to check the supported drives list for any software you plan to use to make sure the Ultra drive is listed,some of the off-brands drives may not be covered,leaving it useless for some applications. Keep in mind we're talking about a $35 difference for a Pioneer 106 ,the drive that has been mentioned all over this forum as being a solid drive. I haven't seen any mention of the Ultra drive,so what does this tell you? price can't always be the determining factor when buying gear.Good luck!

    I don't know anything about the Ultra drive you mentioned, but I do have an option. I purchased a reconditioned HP 300i DVD+RW 4x2.4x8 internal drive from eCost for $99 a couple of months ago and have been very pleased with it. I have burned perhaps 30 disks, both +R and +RW, of 5 different brands, and have not made a coaster yet. In fact I like it so much that I just ordered another one for my second computer, now at $82.95 US delivered.
