I have three burners across three systems, and all are IDE.  All but one cost 
less than 70$, and they all have worked pretty good.  Any of the problems 
that I have had are attributable to the blanks that I use.  Some work better 
than others.  For instance, when I use Memorex 700 MB blanks, I have not 
burned one coaster.  Verbatim and Fuji I burn coasters more than not if my 
burn speed is higher than 4X.  I believe that my linux systems have a Teac 
and a Mitsumi burner in them, and I am not sure what's in my XP system(tho I 
rarely use that to burn CDs.)
