Plextor are the first and have been the only manufacturer to my knowledge. They had a SATA DVD writer out for a few years now, and then moved on with the PX-712SA, PX-716SA, PX-755SA and also the PX-760SA. I think they also had a PX-708SA but I know the first one didn't go down well as it wasn't native and only worked on certain Intel-chipset mainboards. I'm not sure if these ones are the same. Anyway, right now, I don't think it's a big deal, what with Windows XP being awkward about SATA drivers this would make it even more of a hassle. For now, until Vista comes out (hopefully with full SATA support) IDE interfaces are fine.
