Just picked up a Lite-on IHAS124 from Amazon, turns out it is a IHAS124F, had 124A & 124B  but never heard of an HAS124F before. Any major differences? T.I.A.

I've never really paid specific attention to model numbers on optical drives. The important thing to ask is "does it work" and "does it do what you need it to"

The nice thing about optical drives is they are a dime a dozen, they pretty much all work. If all you do is movie watching and occasional burning there is no need for anything fancy. If you do a lot of DVD burning of lightscribe you may want to consider forking out the dough for a higher end unit.

Thanks, no problems, just curious, I have seen different letters sometimes meant a slight variation in the drive, I do a lot of burning.

Most models are just rebrands or minor refits, just make sure is sata and it should be fine
