Samsung's SH-S182D 18x DVD burner
If there's one thing that's far beyond diminishing returns at this point, it's insanely fast DVD writers -- but we do know how much Samsung loves to label something "World's blank," which is why we assume they spent the R&D dollars to create the (ahem) world's first 18x DVD burner. And being that we here at Engadget burn DVDs once every, dunno, couple of months, we can see this shaving literally minutes off our burns over of the next couple of years. It also does do DVD±RW, DVD-RAM, and features Tilt Actuator Compensation (TAC -- whatever that is), Double Optimum Power Control (DOPC -- whatever that is), and a $70 US price tag.

Update: Zing! Samsung -- and we -- apparently stand corrected. See: Plextor's PX 760A.
