I don't know about better per se, but I have had 2 of the 7200s, and they really are superb for what I did, got 2 b one of the best around at the moment. you shouldn't be sorry if you get a good one, always danger of a dud with any,. don't right it off if it is, it always happens, they are good.
I was probably one of the first to buy one when they came out, it was just pot luck, turned out to be one of the best drives around in the end.
ppl on reviews always seem to right off the whole lot after they get just one dud, look at newegg or ebuyer. there are always some
its burned a fair variety of media, verbatim, samsung, and some really cheap ones with no trouble at all
very good choice
