Plextor are often considered one of the best manufacturers although they are a little more
expensive than the others. Their Premium drive is good if you are burning masters as it
incorporates decent error checking.
However, these days it may be worth going
for a DVD burner. They are a little more expensive but I find many of my projects are
around the 1-2GB size now which is too big to fit on a CD. So far I haven't noticed any
problems with audio CD's burned on a DVD burner.
