Which drive is best?

Hi there,

I am looking for a replacement drive for my Inspiron 7120 laptop and have managed to narrow the choice down to the 3 below which I have been told will fit.

Can you guys/gals advise on whether any is better than the other. Have tried to search for reviews but have come up with nothing.

The contenders are:

Sony/NEC Optiarc AD-7543A-01
NEC AD-5540A
LG GSA-T20N

I’m looking for the drive that will give excellent burns on Taiyo Yuden TYG02 / 03 dye mainly. Speed isn’t of real importance, it’s the quality of the burns that matters.

Thanks in advance

There really is no best drive. Is is personal preferences, my son.

LG GSA-T20N :flower:
It’s a bit noisy, but otherwise it is probably the most reliable slim burner.

LG GSA-T20N is a good option, is my burner and never had a problem.

The drive is a good writer, but has problems to read some discs (which can be read flawlessly in other drives). So I would not get the GSA-T20N again :frowning:
