Why is it that LG drives cost up to £40 more than the Sony Optiarc 7240s? Do they have more features or is it simply overpriced? Or is the Optiarc underpriced? I’m just curious :stuck_out_tongue:

From my favourite vendor:
LG GH22NS (exact model not specified :eek: ): 18,80€
AD-7240S : 22,95

With Lightscribe:
LG GH22LS (exact model not specified :eek: ): 25,95€
AD-7241S : 23,95

All are bare bulk drives.
The LG drives are also available as Retail package with additional face plates, software, screws and (sometimes) cables.
