Sony AD-5260S-0B or Sony AD-7280S-OB DVDRW drive?

Hi people,

I hope you can help. I am just about to buy a new internal DVDRW drive (the one in my tower has had a door/tray malfunction and despite numerous attempts to clean it, the tray just won't open 8 out of 10 attempts).

Anyway, I have spotted 2 but not quite sure what the difference is and hope you can clarify for me.

They are Sony AD-5260S-0B and Sony AD-7280S-0B.

Thank you for any help you have. :)

Apart from the number they have the same specs. It could be that the AD-5260-0B is an older model.

Thank you. Does it matter that one has "OEM" in the title?

OEM products are generally supplied to PC builders, and normally come without manuals, install discs, boxes etc.

I would also expect a Sony OEM product to be supplied without a manufacturers warranty, so if the boxed product has more than one year warranty you should go for that

Thank you - I may just go for the 5260 model then which isn't the OEM one (if I have understood what you have said alan14).
