Plextor seems to have taken a massive nosedive recently.  For instance,
they make silent drives that are only silent when using their software
on windows.  Someone write a patch to enable the silent feature on
linux, and Plextor's lawyers sent him a letter.

I haven't used any NEC drive.  They certainly can be very cheap.

For the past several years, I've been quite impressed with LiteOn
drives.  The recent Benq's I've used were competant, but not as quite as
the LiteOns.  So, for the time being, I'm sticking with LiteOn.
