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.

At this point you might as well go with a Blue Ray burner that can do it all. I bought a LG WH16NS40 as it supports almost every format you can burn and can even rip ULHD movie ISO's with the right program and firmware. I have burned a few BD disks with it and my Sony x800 ULHD player likes them fine and they play. Hard to say who makes the best normal DVD burner these days but probably LG on a guess and more then likely the Asus is based on a LG drive too. Probably whichever one you get the best price on if you don't want a BD-RE burner now.

Before you buy a new drive, you might want to try a different SATA cable and/or a different drive just to make sure that buying a new one will fix the issue.

Buffer size isn't really as important as it used to be. Unless your system is really old, it shouldn't have any issues delivering the data fast enough.

If I had to choose, I'd go with the LG or Lite-On.

Must be a lot more expensive where your at as I think I paid around 60 for mine shipped and I hardly burn disk anymore but wanted to be able to burn all the latest BDXL dual layer and M disk stuff. Blank 25 gig media here has gotten pretty cheap for 50 cake boxes so I have a bunch to play with now.
