[quote=Burnsama;2204012]Yes 7200S is better than 7201S ( better quality scan with BenQ 1655 )
and I own both model mutiple unit[/quote]
[quote=negritude;2204239]That’s still not enough of a sample to draw any sort of reasonable conclusion. I’m very skeptical of the idea that what is essentially the same drive, only with the inclusion of lightscribe, is somehow an automatically worse burner. [/quote] Not having tested the 7201S myself, I also doubt that the 7201 should be any worse (or better) than the 7200 on average.
I’m not sure how many “multiple” units Burnsama has, or if they are of the same or different “batches”?
There is significant variance between individual drives of the same model, and you really shouldn’t conclude anything general about quality difference between models just from experience with one drive of each model - you should merely conclude something specific about those two specific drives.
This BTW is a major problem as I see it with drive reviews - the burn quality depends on the reviewer’s “luck” in getting a good, average or bad drive.
