BenQ 1650/1655 in EW164B case


My BenQ EW164B is dead. Is it possible to replace the 1640 drive with 1650 or 1655? I can buy used 1640 unit, by the 1650 is on my table…


I can say the 1640drive and the 1655 drive have the same lenght.
So i dont think that the usb? or Firewire controller? only allow only 1640drives… it could be work. But its not easy to find anything newer then a 1620 or 1640 drive in less time.


The 1640 in EW164B had probably a special firmware optimized to work with usb interface. Is there the firmware for external 1650?


There is no external DW1650, they never made one.
