here is the pcb…
Mediatek? Is it a Samsung or Liteon?
Neither nor. The PCB design and the number of cables used do not match to Samsung or Liteon.
But I donÂ´t think that Asus build the drives by themselves. Did another brand also use MT-chipsets?
If itÂ´s not a Samsung as I first thought it could be that Asus did their own this time.
Anyhow the results donÂ´t look bad.
Alternate have it long time in the shopping-list but it seems the not easy to get avaible
Buffolo release new model
Look at their thumbnails… they are in the future, 10x DVD-RW DL!!!
Will Asus make Pioneer 112 drive this time or stick to their own 1612bl ?
Ok, so does anyone have any further info on this new Buffalo drive/Pioneer 112L drive? What chipset does it use, MediaTek, NEC, ?
If it will use NEC it have LF i think
I’m confused now as I thought the 112 was going to have Lightscribe, not Labelflash.
Lightscribe requires special hardware, LF does not.
When the 1612 is based on a Pioneer, both have MTK, right?
And I think only NEC-chipsets make LF avaible
