    My CD-RW drive died a long time ago. I want a new one, but I don't know anything about the latest CD burners! What's the best one for under $100? I'm looking for:

    -reliability
    -fast speed
    -quiet operation
    -reliability

    also, are DVD-R/W drives good for anything?

    I just got one of the Lite On drives that Kelley mentioned. So far, so great! [​IMG]
    I got it from newegg also ... ordered it on a Monday morning, it was delivered on Thursday morning. $72 including free FedEx shipping.

    Best bang for the buck is definately Lite-On.
