No free delivery from them.

dont really understand why there isnt 16+ speed discs available. Kinda makes the 18, 22, and 24x pointless without the media to burn it.

I had a sony optiarc and it broke just after a year of service. Prefer lite-on and would have gone for one at the time but this was cheaper.

optiarc burners are great for xbox game copies

Had 2 optiarc drives - both died as per VN125250's experience. Avoid.

Point is that these drives let you burn 16x discs at higher speeds...

Trouble is it's a waste of time really and a 24x burn even on top end discs isn't goin to be one that lasts.

Every drive is great for Xbox 360 copies, 2 years ago things might have been different and a Pioneer gave the most reliable burns. These days it doesn't matter because the drives being used in the Xbox 360s are much better readers.

Last time I checked Sony's were made by Benq, no bad thing as Benq make among the best DRDRW's
