Finally!!! I have my SATA burner for 2 years now http://www.digitimes.com/systems/a20061003A7035.html
DigiTimes, citing industry sources, says that we may finally see the end of IDE DVD burners by the end of 2007. Apparently all the big names are on the bandwagon to boot.
SATA has been adopted for several DVD-burner models, such as the Sony AW-Q160S, Asustek DRW-1814BLT and DVD-E616A3T, the sources indicated. Samsung, Pioneer and the Taiwan-based Lite-On IT and BenQ will launch SATA DVD burners this quarter, the sources noted.
