I've used the SATA version of that DVD burner, and quite simply, it's really solid hardware, however at the time the Linux support was a little shaky - however that was nearly 9 months ago - and libata has come a long way since then.

Yeah... it just doesn't seem like there's really much reason to use SATA for a DVD burner. Is the IDE bandwidth really a bottleneck?

The only positive benefit I saw was extremely low CPU usage, practically unmeasureable.
