Recommended Burner for Dell PP31L Studio Laptop?



:confused:I’m searching for a replacement burner for my Dell Studio PP31L laptop. I found a Sony-Nec AD-5670S for about $US 80 and thought I’d better come here and check it out. Here, I saw references to a NEC Optiarc AD-5670s and got the idea that the NEC Optiarc AD 5670s is a re-badged Sony-NEC. Is that true? (Duh! I know, but I just want to make sure that I’ve got it straight.)

Bit-setting, etc., is very important to me.

What burner is favored here? Where would be the best place to shop online? I’m in central USA.

Thanks in advance for your views,



[B]Optiarc[/B] is Sony and Nec…


It actually was Sony and NEC. Now it’s only Sony - but I think they still have most of the people who used to work for NEC in the ODD departments.
