Best DVD Multi-Writer For Your PC?

I have always been extremely fond of the NEC line of DVD burners, my last being a 16x ND-3540A.
These burners consistently burned at top speeds for me, averaging an entire DVD burn in around 6 minutes.

Now NEC appears to have stopped making their own brand of DVD burners, and instead have forged some agreement with SONY to produce a combined-engineering "OptiArc" drive. As these drives have been getting not-so-great reviews, I was forced to shop around for another brand.

I have found a lot of great reviews on the Samsung SATA line of multi-writer drives. 
The drive for me appears to be the SH-S203N model, with the following specs:
