well the thing is... i already have the 1673S drive... but it's cool cause i already flashed the 1693S firmware to it, the KS04 version.
so far so good
on a side note.... im not to conserned with dual layer media in general, since it costs WAY to much, it costs around 10+ dollars per disk vs like 40cents-ish for dvd+r disks.
anyone know how reliable newer lite-on's are for longevity wise? ... cause my older Lite-On 24102b drive im VERY happy with i had it for around 3+ years now and it's still going strong... i dont know much about my drive (1673S) and stuff but the "feel" of the drive just feels "cheaper" (like drive tray ejecting and loading and the tray itself just has a flimsy feel to it) compared to my 24102b liteon drive ... plus it dont have that black rubber band thinggy (the one for dust) on the drive tray for the 1673S drive like my 24102b drive did... i just hope they aint sacrificing there drive quality to make the drives cheaper
anyone have any general comments on the 1673S drive (those who own one) etc ?
