#1

I want to try a BenQ drive for the high rips now available. Does it matter which version of the 1620 drive I get (the regular or the “Pro”)?

My usual source for all things hardware related is Newegg.

thanks

nope the only difference between the pro and none pro is fw, if load pro fw on none pro its pro pro only adds 4x +R DL the none pro is 2.4x +R DL not big change mostly for PR people to say hey this is pro

The regular and the pro are the same drives. A regular 1620 with firmware B7P9 or later is a pro-drive.
