I would say LITEON 22154 first, and SONY 22521 second, by reputation, and wash your hands before handling discs :-)

BTW, it's not true that anything added has to be done by PC World or it voids the guarantee.

If that's what they told you then they are misinformed or misleading you.

It only voids a guarantee if it can be proved or determined that adding something was responsible for causing the fault.

Anyway,
