    Based on the reviews, the best ones are:

    Pioneer A06 based
    Plextor 708A based
    Sony (DRX510UL )

    Plextor and Pioneer are available from number of makers (LaCie uses Pioneer I think). All of them are multiformat (-RW, +RW).
    Or you can buy Firewire/USB2 external exclosure and buy internal drive to put it in.
    Check LaCie prices at compusmart.com (~400 CAD).

    12:15 now.

    Plextor 8X DVD burner. Both exterbal and internal models available. Street price (from www.pricegrabber.com) around $250. So far all those that have bought one are very happy with theirs, i.e. no coasters :)

    Sony also have one for around the same price, and I'm sure that Pioneer will jump on the 8X DVD wagon shortly too.
