Yet another "which one should I buy" thread



After saying “Good bye!” to my old NEC ND-2500A I need a new burner.

It should be a good reader/writer for CD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW and I’ve picked those three candidates:

LiteOn iHAS120
NEC Optiarc AD-7200S

I can’t really decide so I’m asking you cdfreaks which one of those to get. Or maybe another one? Waiting for the new iHAS drives?

TIA for your help,


Get the Optiarc AD-7200S now or wait a little longer for the Lite-On iHAS322.


Asked my local dealer and they won’t get them until end of november so I guess I’ll pick the NEC.

Any suggestions for a good scanning drive (jitter)?


lite-on 20A3P or Optiarc 7190A [which is re-badged 20A3P]
