dvd writer for MDK 10.1
im going to get a dvd writer drive and i want to know what works with 10.1 and what doesn't, my choices are:

BenQ DW1620
LG GSA-4160B
LG GSA-4163B
LiteOn SOHW-1633S
NEC ND-3520

if you've used one of these drives with 10.1 please let me know how well it worked and maybe a short review, thanks.

I've used all those models with Linux, except the BenQ-one. All work great! Haven't done any specific reviewing, though. Never had any trouble with burning drives under Linux.

Unless you have dual boot Linux & Windows all that extra stuff will go to wast and isn't required.
