7290H Liggy's Strategy version overview


I have noticed the Strategy version overview at Liggy’s blog http://liggydee.cdfreaks.com/page/en/Optiarc-AD-7280S/

As I understand though 7290H 1H44 is an older firmware but it has newer writing strategies for everything except CD-R. Is this correct?

Is it normal that an oem firm (hp) has more advanced startegies that the manufacturer’s one?

I suppose that mixing the two firms is something that doesn’t worth the effort, no?

As I have some issues writing to DVD+R, I have a post down in the forum, it is recommended to change the firm to 1H44?

Also the media reports for 7280 in this forum are applicable to the 7290?

Thanks in advance
