I have yet to have an issue with any external optical drive (and that's unsurprising given how often I use the one I have).
Mine is LiteOn (and I have no idea if they're still making them).
Unless you anticipate heavy use I really would not concern myself too much with "quality." These are so cheap and ubiquitous as to be disposable, though that need has seldom arisen in my experience and observation.

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.
