SHM-16H5S or SHM-165P6S?

Which one should i buy?

I can’t find a lot of user experience/scans about the 16H5S but the info i found is positive. (including the review)

There’s more info about the 165P6S.

is this a more popular drive?


The 16H5S is the older model and is actually a 1635S with the addition of LightScribe.

For a new purchase the 165P6S is the better choice (and if you need LightScribe, look for the 165H6S). Then there’s also the Sony DW-G120A (or G121A with LightScribe) which is the same drive, but with Sony firmware.
