Burner advice

I’m after a new burner thats on the s-ata platform.

My choices from the retailers I have access too are the samsung 183A (whats the difference between L/A etc?) and the liteon sh-16a7s, this drive in particular will be used for the occasional burn probably a dvd+r but mainly for reading discs and ripping stuff. I may also burn some dual layer discs on it.

L has Lightscribe.

ah ok. Is the drive better or worse than the liteon?

This is interesting to me also, I am returning the PATA unopened to BestBuy at lunch today.

I think I saw somewhere on the net that Samsung uses a Lite-On drive.


No way.

It uses only the same chipset of Mediatek.
