I am looking for a DVD-writer to replace a defective DVD-ROM in a Dell PC.

I have these choices in Toronto:

  1. GSA-H50N ($39 CAN)

  2. GSA-H22N ($36 CAN)

I will probably get the H50N since it’s newer model. What do you think? What kind of chipset is H50N using: Panasonic or Renasas ?


#2

I think H50N is a Panasonic one.
But I would go with H22N.
Try H22L, for LightScribe.

No, i read in other thread that the H50N is just a H42N sold in Canada, so it has a Renesas chipset.

No. H50N is Panasonic based drive. It is the sucessor of H22N increasing support for more 18x medias and support for 10x DVD+R DL.

In other thread people are saying that shops from CANADA and not from USA are selling H50N.

Hm, ups, then sorry. I looked in that thread 2 day ago, but maybe i only read the last post :-/


#6

Thanks. Since H50N is the sucessor of H22N, I should buy the H50N sicne they are almost the same price.


#7

Well, in in germany the H55N will be available at 26.03.2007 according to some online shops. So that would be a choice too ^^

I agree. H55 may be best option for upgrade. See first impressions about the lightscribe version of the drive here http://www.cdrlabs.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=23093 and here http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=210958

What are the differences between H50N and H55N?
