It looks like it’s been over 3 weeks since anyone asked this. Just got a new Dell that came with a piece of !!@#! LG GH30N & need to replace it… Shame as my last Dell came with an Optiarc 7200S.
This one should serve you nicely:
Apart from the Optiarc 7200S/7240S and their Lightscribe/Labelflash variants, are there any other SATA drives that are worth a look?
Welcome to the forum madrooster
I’m looking into getting an LG GH22NS50 (when I can find one in stock here) to replace my dying Optiarc 5170S, so that may be worth a look also. But as mentioned the Optiarcs are also good choices.
I also have a Samsung SH-S223F which is pretty good as long as it has the latest firmware.
Are there any Liteons that are worth a look?
I’m looking at doing good quality burns.
