If I remember right, the IHAS124-19 is a Sony Optiarc AD-7240S clone. The AD-7260S is very similar to the AD-7240S so I'd buy whichever one is cheapest. Don't bother with the Samsung.

Personally, I have always had great results from LG optical drives. My frustration has been lack of firmware support, but since I don't burn many discs these days it is not a major concern. I just use the drives as readers/rippers. LG drives are riplocked by default, but they do perform well. That said, the Optiarc drives are pretty good. I never went with the 7260 but have a couple 7240's collecting dust somewhere. At the time they were probably the best overall choice for a all purpose burner. Suspect that is the case with the 7260 as well.

If a drive is good right off the bat, does it need a firmware update? ;)

Sometimes... Yes :D . But you are right, LG drives are usually damn good burners out of the gate. I had been critical of them in the past that they just released a new model, but that kept MFG going I guess... Now if BenQ and Plextor did that, they might still be around today... Still got some Plextors (PX-716A & PX-755SA) and BenQ'S (DW1620's & DW1640's) in storage... not sure why. I will never use them again. Retired my old nForce2 rigs recently too. Time to get rid of that stuff.

Either one is a good choice. I guess if it was me and I had to choose, I'd go with the Sony.

If I don't have Nero handy, I use ImgBurn.

Yeah, that's one of my boys. He's got a Happy Meal box stuck on his head.

Another ImgBurn vote, but I did purchase Nero for Linux and like using that alot. Not as bloated with stuff I don't need or want. That said I suspect Nero Linux is going end of life since it has not been updated in a long time. Lack of interest I suspect. Most people use Brasero or K3b there anyway. I was always used to the classic Nero interface and the Linux version was worth the 10 bucks or so I paid for it.

Nero really hasn't updated Nero Burning Rom much over the years either. They keep adding features to the suite, but the core program hasn't changed much.
