I can give direct experience advice on this but in general you can't go wrong with Plextor though you may want to wait and see what other opinions arise....

I've had favorable results with Sony, Plextor and AOpen.

Never had a problem with any of them. :tazz:

I'd stay far away from Optiwrite, and HP isn't one I'd use.

plextor is the brand to get if you will be doing a lot of burning. the drives are rock solid and last for years. the specs on that model look decent enough too, so it would be the best choice.
Given the options presented from best buy there, and the amount on the gift card, go with the plextor!

Plextor is a good burner, but I think that NEC is a better VALUE. See if you can use that 150 on something else other than a burner at BB, and then I would look at some NEC (the ND-3520A is very good at only about 55 bucks online) burners, and if you need external, you can get a USB enclosure for it at about 15. Or, search for seller "narro" on ebay. You get a good price on an NEC burner with an enclosure. (The specs are 16x dual layer and just as good a others.) But like I said, if you have nothing else to get at bestbuy, then the Plextor is a good quality decision.
