I use the Yamaha CRW4416S and find it very good. It also allows you to boot
from it using a bootable disk which is not possible with all CD-R or CD-RW
drives. The supplied Toast software has enabled me to use the drive for all
practical purposes without any additional expense on other software.

Good luck,
