? re WH16NS40 vs BH16NS55

I have a question regarding the two drives in the title.

I’m putting a system together for a friend, and don’t know if I should get him the same drive I have (WH16NS40), or get a BH16NS55, which my local b&m store has for 50 dollars more. Should mention I’m in Canada.

Is there enough difference between the two to warrant spending the extra 50?


If you check out this thread, you’ll notice the difference, and can decide if the extra cost is worthwhile.

If that’s the only difference, then to me it’s not worth the extra 50 bucks. If it did better quality burns it might be.
