Any of these worth keeping?

I have a buddy who used to be into building systems for people a few years ago and he gave me a bunch of old dvd writers that he had in a closet. Most are new and the worst are barely used:

3 x LG GSA-H62N

2 x Samsung SH-S223F

2 x Lite On ihas120

No great discoveries here, but was curious if anyone thought any of these were worth hanging on to? I might put a couple away for later use and donate the rest, but which ones to keep?

It's always good to have at least one Lite-On around for write quality testing.

So for fun I burned a TY on each drive @ 16x and ran discspeed on each with my ihas422 at 8x and the LG performed the best by a good margin with PI errors avg. 0.56, Maximum:10 and total 8853 and PI Failures Avg 0.00, Maximum 2 and total 312. I assume those are pretty good as they are much smaller than any other drive I currently own but I admit that I dont know how to interpret the graphs very well. I also dont know how to post the screen shoyt either.

I'm pretty sure that LG used a Renesas chipset. Those were always really good.
