    Hard to say there is so many good ones about.Alot of people say the pioneer 108 is best value for money.You can't go wrong with a pioneer.

    Hey jayprez, Here are the top 4 to consider,not in any specific order: Pioneer,Plextor,Nec,and Benq.All 4 of these are highly recommended here. I have the I/o magic Idvd16dd which was built by benq, model #1610.I got this at staple's day after thanksgiving sale for $39.99 after rebate. They are now marked at $129.00.It is performing perfect.

    Hey saugmon i tend to disagree with your top four.I reckon these are probably the leading pack at present in the dvd writer battle.Pioneer,Sony,NEC,Lite-on.

    Plexter is a good drive don't get me wrong but when it comes to value for money these are the 4 most go for mate.

    I kinda like my BeNQ DVD DD DW1620. But as far as I have heard the Pioneer 108 is the best bang for your buck!

    Well i presently have a lite-on and a NEC and both are really good drives.But i have had a pioneer in the past so i know where people are coming from.Pioneer you can't knock them bloody good drives.This would be a much better choice than getting a BeNQ.

    I do like my 2 108s, they have performed above & beyond the call of duty.
