Hi,[QUOTE=LebronJames23;2096244]May i know what’s the difference between the above two mentioned dvd-writers?[/quote]different hardware, different media support.
How does the suffix of ‘D’ and ‘B’ signify it’s functionality since it’s the same model.
The “suffix” B or D is the essential part of the name since it describes the model. 203 means only “20x, Sata interface”.
It seems only the current SHS203D is prevalent in the market now.
Yes. 203D is the successor of 203B. Same applies to 203N and 203P.
[QUOTE=LebronJames23;2096388]Are both samsung shs203d cross-flashable to shs-203b vice versa?[/quote]No.
are there any writers which are on par with comparisons to samsung e.g. pioneer, plextor?
Plextor is just recycling drives from other manufacturers.
To see what drive is better for your own demand, just read the “Results and Discussions” threads for these drives. Additionally, haveing a look into the stickies (Read First) and reviews is a good idea to decide what drive will be your personal favourite.
