i would have hoped sata based optical drives had taken off by now.

in the intel based world, the 945 series and up chipsets only have 1 ATA channel so well realistically its gonna go away soon.

plextor generally is overpriced though, and no better than say an NEC. if it were the slot loader which at least has some cool factor i might think it was worth maybe $70.

Intel chipsets have only had one ATA channel since the 915 series, I believe. I think they are gone entirely on either the 965 or the series after that one, according to the roadmaps.

I'll rather have 2 channels, thank you very much.
