I bought my A06 at Futureshop too. It is labeled 106 with the 1.07 firmware. :iagree: :iagree: :iagree: :iagree:
I have been very happy with it.
It burns Princo dvd-r 4X very well. All 50 were written but 2 did not verify using Nero 184.108.40.206. They are avilable at Sonnam.
Using tigerdirect.ca Ultra dvd+r the drive spit out 20 too soon. The media are terrible.
No name Optorite 4x very good too. You can get them in Toronto
for about $ 1 @. Cakebox $ 25-35.
Hypermedia 4x were great. 25/25 r&w verified.
This drive is available throught TO for about $ 130-160 retail.
