Other than speed and SATA interface, is there any reason to go for this upgrade? They are both NEC chipset driven drives, I gather. Is one quieter? My Pioneer is pretty quiet.
Does one do better with TY T02/T03 DVD +R media than the other?
I am just curious, cuz Ive had the pioneer quite some time and it has made awesome burns for me. It still works great, not dirty..so just wondering if I should stick with it or go for an optiarc?
Also, Ive read threads on here regarding the 7240 vs 7260...was it determined the 7260 is same hardware pretty much and still good quailty burner that 7240 is?
Also, whats a good scanning drive nowadays? I have an older liteon drive and liteons are still great scanners from what Im reading...will any liteon do or is there a specific series/model?
