Thank-you very much Ian,
I don't suppose you could be a little more specific in what you mean by "in most cases"?
Wouldn't it be in all or no cases?
The reason I ask is that you may have some basis for comparison...
Having compared many equivalent drives over the years that differ only by this mechanism.
I will proceed with a SH-B123L buy (have to get OS, none in Oz)...
But may continue further analysis in this thread by buying a few more combos/BR writers not already reviewed.
