You think Sony have been making Liteon PCB assemblies since Day 1 ???
Have another look at the link I posted.... [/B]
slow huh? do i have to spell it out?
where did i say Sony has been making PCB's since day one?
where did i say the drive IS a Sony?
all i have merely stated is that the PCB is silkscreened with Sony, and appears to be manufactured by Sony. for those who are slow, this doesnt meean the drive IS a Sony, merely that Sony is producing the drives for Liteon.
it appears to another step in the colaboration between the two companies and certainly explains the change from LDW to SOHW model numbers.
why on earth would Liteon make PCB assemblies and put Sony on it? that would be like Dell building computers and putting E-machines emblems on them.
