I've had 2 drives like that. What you want is a plextor. Preferably one
with burn proof, which will help with the coaster problems. My plexwriter
is fairly old, but I've never had a problem with underruns. The new models
have larger buffers, and that whole burn proof thing... I haven't tried
their IDE drives, but I highly recommend the brand. If I upgrade any time
soon, it'll be  another plexwriter.

But dont take my word for it. Check out a few reviews. They're
consistantly good.
