First of all, there are four drives, each of which has several names:
940, 9411, 924
960, 9611, 926
980, 9811, 928
924 is a bare drive, 940 is a drive bundled with software and cables,
and 9411 is the same drive in an external case. The 928 is new and
may not be available yet.
The 926/960/9611 has replaced the previous two in Sony's lineup. The only
differences between them are the read speed (2x, 4x, 6x, 8x), cache size,
and the removal of disc-at-once recording from the 926 (and, I'm told, from
the 928 as well).
I'd prefer the 924 over the 926, but I'm one of those weird people who
thinks they need to use disc-at-once recording for everything.
