Here's a warning about the MSI Serial ATA CD-RW and combo drive: it does not comply with the serial ATA spec. If you use it with anything other than a handful of Intel motherboards, it will burn coasters, it will destabilize your system. I didn't read carefully enough before buying - this information is on their site - but you have to be careful because the price is very good (too good to be true as it turns out) compared to the other SATA CD burners on the market. So, what're your experiences with Serial ATA? Other than that, I think SATA is great!
