Sony vs Lite-on

Which is the better writer?And what’s the best IDE model to buy?I need ide not sata interface.

Hi,

Sony rebadges hardware from different manufacturers. At the moment, they joined with NEC (Optiarc). So it is a good idea to browse the NEC section. Apart from that, they sell a DRU-830, that are Samsung SH-S182D clones.
There are no more Sony branded Liteon drives.

So your question would be: NEC or Liteon?
