Solved Which Optical Drive is better?

Hi!

I posted a question earlier regarding optical drive issues. Since my old one was finished I ordered another ASUS because of the really nice experience. Now I'm in Pakistan so the the online websites are not very accurate and I just received a call that ASUS drive is out of stock. Since I have already paid (Depositing Money to the bank account) they told me I can chose another drive or wait until the ASUS is back in stock which would most probably be in a week.

I have following options:
SAMSUNG OPTICAL DRIVE (SUPER-MULTI DRIVE)
HP SUPER-MULTI DRIVE
or Waiting for the ASUS drive

what do you guys think should I wait and if not then how is samsung and HP. They will also have Sony drives in their stock by next week and Asus as well.

So please help me out to decide.

BTW the website is www.galaxy.pk

Burners are basically "throw-away". They only cost $15-20 US so if it goes bad, you simply toss it & buy a new one. I have no brand loyalty when it comes to burners - Asus, LG, Lite-ON, Samsung, Sony,etc - they will all do the job. Just buy whichever is cheapest.

I just looked at that site. 1800 INR = $32 US, is that how much burners cost in your country or is that site overpriced?

I use LG, Asus. Samsung...whatever is on sale. Couldn't tell you one brand is better or worse than another.

Off the choices listed I would flip a coin. They all do the same job. I use Lg, but that is because they are sold everywhere, not because its better.

It is actually 1800 PKR not INR. 1800PKR=$18

The reason I'm posting this question is because I have had bad experience with every brand except ASUS. I have about every brand and all failed after burning around 20 - 80 DVD's and it was only ASUS which reached nearly a 1000 before it gave up.

I'm gonna get samsung then. It is not a bad company and I don't have to wait a week like for the sony or asus.
