Plextor 716SA is the best that there is for DVD burners.

716SA? I too was looking for a dvdrw and i saw the 716A got some nice reviews across the web. But whats the difference between the SA and the A? And besides this i sometimes see 716A/JP, are these all different names for the same thing or different names for different things?

I think it is SATA verses ATA models

hmm yeah that does sound fair to me. And do you have any clue what the JP addition means?

And by the way does DL mean you can only burn DL or can you choose between burning SL or DL

GSA4160BA is meant to be good for backing up protected media... (but not so good for backing up damaged CDs) for reviews on this drive & your other shortlisted ones see [html]www.cdr-info.com[/html]

Trust me I know what I'm doing... ooops, grab the cat...

SATA is useless on optical drive, unless you want to pay more, have extra SATA port or dont want to use flat IDE cable or round cable.

Had it price about the same as stansard ATA, I would have say OK, but not at this price. Unles it went down lately

All DL is backwards compatible to SL. For pure compatability reasons, choose a -/+ R/RW model. Until the industry giants stick to a standard, consumers are stuck with two formats.

From personal experience, I've always used Plextor or Sony. Plextor is my pref for burning cds, and Sony for my DVD's. Both are fast, smooth, reliable, and durable. Whatever you choose, ensure you always get the latest firmware updates.
