About next LG/BenQ burners

Hello,

I’m french, and I’d like to ask you if you have any news about the upcoming burners from BenQ or LG. I am about to buy a burner for my notebook, since the one I have right now is quite annoying ;Toshiba SD-R6372 -> all media 8x are burnt in 2x …

So i saw the LG GSA 5163D which seems very good and not that expensive (about 100€, while a nec 3540 and an enclosure would cost pretty much the same (given the enclosure is compatible …)), but read about LG 5165 or BenQ 1640. Since I can wait a bit, I wanted to know if there are any news.

Thanks.

Well I didn’t know about the one from cpluse.

Just one question then, is there anyone from France or nearby countries who knows about a good external enclosure. I read the post about it, but none of those given are available here.

The only ones I found which had some kind of brand were (all combo FW/USB2):

  • Zynet CD-R3-U2FW
  • TTGI ME-340U2F
  • Advance BX-COMBO5
  • Icy Box IB-550UE-BL (the only I think is good but …)
  • Sarotech MyBOX
  • SNT ST-2312C
  • Mapower Y51C1 (genesys chip, don’t know about it)

Thing is I don’t know about the chip they use, otherwise I think I would already have bought a Nec 3540 and an enclosure (since BenQ DW1640 isn’t available here, and Plex 740 is a bit expensive).
