Hi and Welcome!

The Sony DRU 120 is the same as Sony DW-120A, which is a twin of Liteon SHM-165P6S (only difference: firmware and logo on the frontplate). There are many users here, that are quite happy with that drive and even prefer this over some of the newer 18x or 20x drives.

It has to be admitted, that this drive may be considered outdated (they are getting rare here in Germany), and I am not sure if there will be any newer firmware, since the Sony-Liteon collaboration has ended.
