Thanks, I checked those burners.
I am afraid I didn't make myself clear (my fault), I am not looking for used drives, I was just hoping some new (good) drive to pop out.
Thanks anyway man.
As opposite to "some" I understood that "many" boards don't support IDE anymore (and from quick searches I have done it looks it is so). Anyway, it doesn't matter. Thanks for your additional clarification.

Nearly impossible to find "new" drives these days, except you wanna spend hilarious amount of money on them....
The mentioned drives look good, it's always a gamble anyway.
As for IDE/ATAPI drives, even these days most modern mobos have no legacy IDE support and connectors anymore, you can always add a cheap IDE controller card (eg. flashing a cheap IDE RAID controller is another way too).*** Now that you have read me, do some other things. ***
I know, just hoping.
It's highly probable I'll end up with one modern drive (I have seen a DVR-S21LSK, what's about that?)
As you say used stuff is a gamble (and I am not a gambler )
Anyway my 111 has worked fine lately.
From 118/218 on all their drives are QSI and Liteon clones.

As I said, I probably will have to buy/build a new machine (next autumn hopefully) equipped with a BD drive.
I'd like to have a separate drive for DVDs, when time will come I think I pick what is available and hope.
