[QUOTE=Ice009;2219833]What order would you guys rank these drives
Liteon iHAS 120
From what I understand the Sony and Pioneer both use the same chipset (Optiarc) ?
I need to get about three drives. The Liteon is a must cause I need it for scanning purposes, but what drives should I get for writing? Sony or Pioneer?
I got told a few months ago that Pioneer would be better cause they really work on their firmware and update it quite often. From the sounds of it in this thread the drive hasn’t really improved much since release has it?[/QUOTE]
The Sony 7200 should be a nec based drive, also the 7200 series has prove to be a great dvd burner so i would go for it, and the liteon for scanning and reading.
Sony also uses mediatek chips (not only nec’s), and at some point sony also had some nexpia chiips (old story).
