Any recommendations for a CD-RW/DVD-ROM drive under $100?

I'm looking to replace my existing CD-burner with a new one, but one that has DVD-ROM (playback) capability.

Are there any reliable ones in $100 range?

I don't know about reliability, but these are the ones I've been looking at:

LG ELECTRONICS 48X/24X/48X + 16X CDRW/DVD-ROM EIDE INTERNAL COMBO DRIVE W/SW #GCC-4480BB(White box) $87.00

SAMSUNG 48X/24X/48X + 16X-DVD EIDE INTERNAL COMBO CDRW W/SW (Beige) $103.20

CENDYNE 32X/10X/40X + 12X EIDE INTERNAL CDRW/DVD COMBO DRIVE $106.75

PLEXTOR 20X/10X/40X + 12X-DVD EIDE INTERNAL CDRW/DVD-ROM COMBO DRIVE W/SW (White box) $116.00

Prices are from mWave.

It seems that Plextor would be the most reliable, but it's also the slowest.

Thanks.........

I'm not as much concerned about speed (considering my current burner is slooow), as I am having DVD playback capability.
