Replacing few drives, what would you recommend?

There are my current drives:

Samsung SH-S223F
Lite-on LH-20A1S replace for SATA drive
Pioneer DVR-111D @ 111L replace for SATA drive
Samsung SH-S182M replace for IDE drive
BenQ DW1655
BenQ DW1620 Pro
NEC ND-3550A @ 4551A
Samsung SH-S203B

I would like to replace the highlighted drives.
What drives would you recommend?

I personally wouldn’t replace the Sammy 182M, but that’s just me.

What about an Optiarc 72xxA (IDE)/S (SATA)?

Pioneer 115(D)(IDE)/215 (SATA) are also good drives, but it’s hard to find them now :frowning:

how about 116? I was thinking about 116 if ican cross-flash it to add labelflash support

Yeah, I’d get a 116 if I couldn’t find a 115 anywhere. :iagree:

However, I don’t actually own a 116 (just the 115), so can’t really tell you what it’s like. Maybe have a search in the Pioneer forum for owners’ opinions before you buy :wink:
