SH-S203N vs. SH-S203B



Hello everyone,

I was looking into purchasing a new DVD burner and based on my (admittingly short amount of) research I have come to the Samsung SH-S203B. Unfortunately, they are currently out of stock at Newegg. On the other hand, it seems that they carry the SH-S203N for a cheaper price and it has lightscribe. Really, I don’t care about lightscribe as I do NOT want to pay any more for media than I already do. So, my question is, is there a difference between the 2 other than the lightscribe? Will I be able to use the same firmware for both? Most importantly, will the N have lower quality burns? Slower speeds?

Thanks in advance.
