Aopen 1648 AAP/ PRO New Firmware 1.04

Not sure if anyone noticed this but a new firmware is out for our favorite drive the 1648 aap/ pro. It’s noted with “Performance improve” So if anyone want to do some testing, let’s find out.

I also noticed that the 1648 aap/ pro and 1648 aap are now discontinued, but a new drive labeled 1648L is now available. Very similar spec wise, anyone try this drive yet?

I just bought the 1648L & it sucks with stock firmware. My LiteOn 166s was way better.
