At this point in time, the answer is an emphatic NO. The 115/215 series of drives has more mature firmware with better writing quality and fewer bugs. At some point in the future, the 116/216 may catch up, but right now, the older drives are better.
If you can find a 115/215 for $30 USD or less (including shipping), buy one if you don't have one already, or buy one as an extra, even if you've already got one. They are becoming a valuable item, just like the older BenQ and Plextor drives are.
