    Just different features i.e lightscribe and that. 524 can be crossflashed anyway so makes no difference ;)

    You used to have to have the burner flashed. I think now you can use a payload took instead.

    go for the cheapest one and use payload tool . flashing ihas burners now in my opinion is beckoming outdated and old school both drives will do the same job unless lightscribe is really that important to you ??? ..guess not cheapest it is then mate I WOULD .. ;)
