    i just bought a 360 havent opened it yet. but i was hoping it would be the samsung cause from what i hear its easier to modd. and games dont have to be stealth patched to play again so i hear. can anyone confirm any of this? and would i have to stealth patch every game if i do have a hitachi?

    correct, the Samsung drive has the slight advantage at the moment and they seem to be releasing firmware more often for it.
    The Samsung will stealth patch so you do not have to do that manually, it can also read a DVD5 (single layer) back up. Two things the Hitachi can not do. Also did do not have to be booktyped with the Samsung drive, although if your burner can do it then i would anyway.

    i have one of each (both modded) and i find the sammy works better with cheaper media so you don't have to fork out a fortune for verbs all the time.
