The brands you've mentioned are only OK in my opinion. I'd avoid the Sony drives, there was a post in another topic sayin they burn fast onlly if you can get them to initialize. The LG one I've seen isn't too great in speed.
I personally have a Lite On drive, and I think they're still the best CDRW drives around. They burn fast and are relatively cheap.
Don't be too quick to discount a brand because of one (or two, or three)forum post. There are a lot of loud and obnoxious idoits out there who only want to 'make them pay' if they can't get a product to work. Just an observation.
IMHO, CDRW drives are mostly commodity products. Get whatever is cheap and has the features you want. Liteon often comes up as they are cheap, have buffer underrun, and don't seem to blow up too often.
