    hi, after my experience of a samsung drive, I decided to dump it and buy a new DVD writer.
    I wanted to buy Liteon, but shops around me only sell sony, samsung.
    liteon and benQ are only avalible in Nehru Place, and its a long journey.(3hrs!)

    so, should I buy sony? and which model.the last I seen was DRU 820A for around Rs 2200/-(boxed) 1900/- (unpacked)

    Sony is the best obvious choise. I have used both samsung and sony. Samsung sucks and sony rocks. Been using for 8,9 months now and no problem what so ever.

    I had bought my DVD Writer from Nehru Place at a shop called Computer Empire n guess what? It was a Lite-on albeit it was in October 04
    I dont think it is unavailable, the problem is that they have no profit in selling Lite-on drives i dont know why tohugh. Still, whatever drive u buy, go to Computer Empire. Form inside sources of mine I hv come to know that the shop's investment circle runs in the whole NP n he earns most of his profit form that. Thus he is able to give better prices n reliable products. Buy from that shop!!

    I do have Sony and LG.

    Well, both performs exceptionally well but somehow, Sony's tray developed a glitch of getting jammed. So I have to push it to get the tray go inside the drive. Moreover, most of the times I have to select "eject" in order to get the tray outside. (a common problem I faced with Samsung)

    I did not face any problem so far with LG. (But the tray seems to vibrate when ejected unlike sony which has a far smoother operation)

    Go for Liteon. Almost all the PC mags did rate it High.

    LiteOn > LG > Sony > Samsung

    nonsense, there is nothing like that, it goes by model numbers, many of sony drives are rebadged.

    Sony DW-Q30A = benQ 1640
    DW-Q120A = Liteon SHW-160P6S
    DW-G120A = liteon SHM-165P6S (+ DVD-RAM support)

    no matter if they are boxed or OEM....
