Time to replace my aging (about 9 years old) MSI 4x burner in my desktop tower. I also need to replace the fan on the processor and there is a used PC parts shop that a friend recommends. While I’m there I thought that I would look at what they had for burners. I don’t want to spend more than $25, considering that Newegg has a brand new Sony Optiarc AD-7240S burner for $19.99 and free shipping. Are there any brands of used burners that I should avoid like the plague? Would it be wiser to just order the Sony Optiarc?
[i]Also,[/i] is there any benefit to getting the AD-7260S from Newegg for $28.99 + $0.99 S&H? I don’t know what the differences are but 2 out of 3 reviewers complained about the flimsy tray.
