I recently ordered the S203N from Play.com and the package arrived today, but on closer inspection it turns out they’ve sent me the S203P.
As I understand it, S203N is the S203B with Lightscribe, while S203P is S203D with Lightscribe. I browsed through quite a few reviews of the 203 (as well as browsing this forum) to help me decide which version was best, and basically concluded the B was superior, particularly for error correction - one of the main reasons why I chose the drive in the first place. However, whilst the B model received excellent reviews, according to CDRInfo’s tests, the D model’s error correction is lacking.
So now I’m wondering if I should return it, or will the S203P be adequate enough for ripping with decent error correction? It’s for a new system, and I can’t test it yet because I’m still waiting for some other components to arrive, so I’d just like some advice.
