I love Plextor because I know I'm not going to have problems with em. You pay for it but hey w/e.

For an External DVDRW? GO WITH THE SLOT LOADING DVDRW. I have the PX-716AL and I love not having to mess around with that darn tray. I orinignally had it in an external enclosure via Firewire, now its in my case. Either way it rocks.
