2 questios: Does O/cing effect quality of writes and whe nare the Liteon based on "6"



I have the chance to get a 40125S for about $60..but I want to know if people are finding the write qaulity dimished after o/cing to 48x...I am assuming using appropriate quality media....

Does O/Cing it affect that ability in negative way with backing up copy protection

Also when are the next generation drives due out...ie 6 series chipset drives...like the 48/24/48 drive
