Dear god yes is it better. I had HORRIBLE
experiences with the SM-348B about six months ago and couldn't get any quality burns from it at all even after exchanging it once and going through three or four firmware revisions. I only recently (last week) got a LTC-48161H drive and have absolutely fallen in love with the drive. My only gripe so far is that the tray seems very
flimsy. I'm not sure if this is something inherent to Lite-On drives or not (this is my first Lite-On drive...I've only used Plextor until now). But regardless of that, I'm really liking it a lot so far. Two thumbs up IMHO.
