Panasonic SW-9571 DVD-R/DVD-RW/DVD-RAM on Sun?

Has anyone tried a Panasonic SW-9571 DVD-R/DVD-RW/DVD-RAM drive
on a Sun? I noticed they have dropped just under $200, and the triple
format is appealing.

1. DVD SCSI burner, I want DVD+RW, DVD-RW, DVD-RAM

I've googled until I'm blue (would that be bluegled?) and I can't
find a DVD burner that has all of what I want.  These seem to be
what people like for Linux:


NEC ND1100A DVD+RW/+R, DVD-R, CD-R/-RW (replaces above Ricoh)

HP DVD300i (DVD+RW/+R, CD-R/-RW)
(watch the line wrap)


All of the above units are EIDE.  Is there a SCSI DVD burner that
works with Linux?  My reason for wanting this is the wonderful
burning throughput I get with my SCSI CD burner.  I *NEVER* have
buffer underruns no matter how much else my system is doing.
I can even backup to my SCSI tape at the same time without
problems.  I'm nervous that an IDE burner will force me into
buffer underrun land.
