    @ambrewz... dude Sony just rebrands and sells Lite-on and Benq products...

    In any case... the Sony Dw G120 is a good buy... Its a rebranded Lite On 165p6s and this drive won one of the digit gold buy awards.. its cheap too bout 2.7 including VAT

    as said by teknophobia, sony is a lite-on...but i think it looks better..lol
    and everyone i know who has it, never heard a single complaint. the DRU-810A is said to be the best in its class, the lite-on won the digit award due to package content mostly..so thats not really important...the benq one has slightly faster read speed.
    judging from common talk though i would definitely say the sony is the best

    Don't bother with Lightscribe. It's overpriced, you can't find any media and it takes too long to burn a label. Stick to a standard Sony dual layer burner.

    HMM , abt sony dvd writers .. sony only sells drives manufactured by others .. like lite on and now days benq .. :x

    SONY DRU 810 A IS NOTHING BUT BENQ DW 1640 :lol: - SAME HARDWARE BUT LESS FEATURES IN FIRMWARE ... I MEAN THE DRIVE IS MANUFACTURED BY BENQ ..

    ALSO, NEW MODEL SONY DRU 820 A IS A BENQ DRIVE TOO .... BUT THE ORIGINAL BENQ IS NOT RELEASED YET ... BUT THIS NEW DRIVE IS BASED ON A PANASONIC CHIPSET WHILE OLDER IS PHILIPS CHIPSET .

    NOW WHY U WOULD GO FOR SONY WHEN ORIGINAL BENQ DRIVES ARE AVAILABLE IN MARKET WITH TWO YEARS WARRANTY .

    ALSO U CAN GO AND CHECK WWW.CDFREAKS.COM AND CONFIRM THE FACT ABT SONY AND BENQ DRIVES ...

    I AM USING BENQ DW 1640 FOR LAST 6 MONTHS .. ITS ONE OF THE BEST DVD WRITERS WORLD HAS SEEN ... ALSO IT HAS LOTS OF FEATURES LIKE SOLIDBURN , MEDIA OVERSPEED , ERROR SCANNING , FREQUENT FIRMWARE SUPPORT .. the list is endless .. :lol:

    i would only say that u can get benq dw 1640 .. :D

    Liteon is certainly the best.
    Sony is good.
    Dont know about LG.
    But Samsung is worst.
