Personally, I buy low-end LG drives. They're cheap, fast, and don't
try to be overly clever, which means they tend not to trip themselves
up when something goes wrong (like Plextor has picked up a habit of
doing), but just pass it along for Paranoia to deal with... which is
exactly what paranoia is designed for.
And if one breaks, you're out, eh, $20. So far though, I've not had
breakage issues (been runnign four of them for a few years now).
