chas, thanks for your reply.
I would not go with the 3540 as too many people have had bad scans with the initial firmware.
Well, if I buy the NEC drive, I can assure you that I wouldn't be bothered by the initial firmware for very long. I get your meening though. Unfortunately, my local toy store doesn't specify which Liteon drive they sell. The one and only Liteondrive they sell is listed as "LiteOn 16X DVDÂ±R/RW Dual layer Bulk". I guess I could give them a call to find out which model it is. It is a little cheaper than the NEC drive as well ($61,96/$74,37).
I just found another Liteon model at my local store: "LiteOn 16X SL 4XDL SOHW-1673S-01C" $68.16. Out of stock though..
After some reading in the Liteon section I have finally decided (I think:bigsmile: ) to wait a while until I can get hold of a LiteOn 1693S here in Sweden.
@pinto2: Thanks for your reply. I'm just about to dive into the benq thread.
