    Personally speaking, I've been using the Sony DRU-820A for a year now, with absolutely NO trouble out of it whatsoever.

    Sony gets my business, and my vote.

    I have been using a Sony AD7590 in my HP laptop and the AD7604A in my Dell Laptop and both of those work great.

    I also have the Sony External DRX-840U and it works great as well.

    As far as I know, the external is a rebadged Samsung. But I am not too sure about the two laptop drives.

    All my drives are able to be booktyped without any custom firmware. Just use imgburn or nero.

    Hope this helps.
