Better scanner: LiteOn SOHD-16D2P (Sata) or SOHD-16D2S (IDE)?

I want a good, cheap and reliable scanning device. Which of these is better:

LiteOn SOHD-16D2P (Sata)



it doesn’t matter if the drive is connected to a SATA or PATA controller.

Please note that DVD-ROM (and Combo) drives give scanning results that are not comparable to those obtained with a DVD writer.
You may have a look into this threaddealing with basically the same topic.


Both are excellent drives! Both are keepers.
