Sony Drive at Staples this week

Postby cosmichippo on Sun Jan 04, 2009 6:26 pm

Anyone know if the Sony DVD+RW drive on sale for $25 this week at Staples is worth a look? They don't list the model # unfortunately.

I'm guessing its this one:

According to Staples, its a DRUV204A. From what I can gather online, the DRU-V204A is a rebadged Optiarc AD-7200A.

Yep. That's the one. So is it any good? My NEC 1650 has gotten where it will only burn Verbatim 16X+R at 4X, sometimes 8X if I'm lucky. Would this be a worthy replacement?

The AD-7200A is a pretty decent drive and I'd expect the DRU-V204A to be the same.
