My w520 has a no front label/info lenovo cd dvd burner drive..can i get better for long term recording and long hour use? Id like top quality recordings no music loss. Any recommendations?
The biggest current drive would be a 2TB SSHD Seagate Firecuda, such as this: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product. ... 6822179110

For a drive look at this: https://www.lifewire.com/best-sata-dvd-burners-832424
I have last year's model Samsung SH222BB/BEBE
If that Firecuda is the best, I don't know, but read Anandtech: http://www.anandtech.com/show/10760/sea ... gb-of-nand
I gave up on Seagate after more than one too many DOA's. And a recent "died on the shelf" WD drive has made me question what's going on there too. I think the hard drive industry has seen too much financial pressure and the coming of SSDs to replace them. Seagate's return to offering a 5-year warranty on some of those Firecuda's seems like they are acknowledging a lack of faith from the buyers.
The top-line Samsung SSDs are supposed to be the fastest out there, but their second tier, or Crucial's less expensive drives, are still wicked fast. If your operations are really drive intensive (as opposed to processor-bound regardless of drive speed) the top Samsung SSD's might make a difference, but it is so slight...something like 590K writes per second instead of 580k writes?
I went with Crucial. Have had great service & little need for support with them for decades. An SSD is 'memory' and that's always been Crucial's business. The drives are 7.x mm thick, so they'll fit in just about anything, capacities up to 2TB.

Now stop complaining and get back to work with your "wrongly configured" box of pixels.
