I agree with GLC on the choice of LiteOn burners. They make a range of models with an interchangeable face plate from black to beige in both retail and OEM.
With the interchangeable face plate it means I can keep half a dozen on the shelf and regardless of what machine I get in for repair I can usually accomodate it. The burner comes with an OEM version of Nero and Power DVD. I have one fitted in each one of my machines, my wife has come home with some weird and wonderfull makes of CD's and DVD's and I have never made a coaster with one of them.
Niwa no niwa ni wa, niwa no niwatori wa niwaka ni wani o tabeta.
