Ls Se-s204n

Hello all,
I am looking for an external drive and found out my local store has the samsung LS SE-S204N.
I was the owner of a TS-H552B DVD Recorder :Z which was absolutely a horror! I was very sceptical about a new Samsung DVD recorder but from what I am reading (especially about the S203B) I am reconsidering my options.
So does anyone have any details about it? is it good? does it compare to the S203B?
P.S Would like to know also its relation with DVD-R media (since I got a cakebox of Maxell around 100)…
