[QUOTE=negritude;2079914]The only major-brand external DW1655 that was ever sold was by I/O Magic.
Any other external DW1655 you find is something that a system builder put together themselves, and not something that was licensed by Philips or BenQ.
And “CY” on the chip means that it’s a Cypress chipset, the absolute worst chipset for DVD burners. For proper performance, you must use a DVD burner via Firewire, or if USB, then one with an NEC chipset.[/QUOTE]
I don’t use this burner much. Only for tasks that the NEC 6550A can’t handle that is in my laptop or if I need two DVD drives for some reason. The best feature of this enclosure is it have a built-in power supply so all I need to power it is a standard computer/printer etc. power cable. It may not be the best but it serves its purpose.
