Default dvd burner

i am in desperate need of a new optical drive (i currently have a 4x cd burner ) and i am looking to upgrade it to this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827152059

let me know of you think this is a good deal. it looks good, judging by the reviews on the site. if you have any better suggestions, please let me know.

NEC makes a great DVD burner. We have it's little brother, the ND 3450A, and it works perfectly.

4x, pretty slow....

the one you listed looks pretty good, I personally installed an NEC before, and it was simple as pie...but then again it's the same as installing any other optical drive, and it's lasted a while too
