Got a new Benq 1655 I/O Magic rebadged , came with firmware GCAB. Soon some scans .
Can you please let us know from where? Also what to look for on the box to make sure its a rebadged BenQ 1655
soab don’t have one here. What’s box look like/say please? How much $?
If i get one i want the green stripe but if price is right i guess i can live without it Guess i could paint it or put green tape on it
Interesting… no WOPC tab.
DVD_PREDATOR is this the BenQ version of QSuite2.1 or something that came with the drive?
Yes that’s a 1655 alright.
Staples probably have it but the specs on their website still equivalent to a DW1625. The model# is IDVD16DLS.
DVD_PREDATOR: what’s the model number for your I/O Magic (1655)?
The model # is the same for both (1625 & 1655) but you will know by the specs chart in the box, for example 2.4 dvd+R DL for 1625, 8x dvd+r DL for the 1655.
That’s very helpful. Thanks.
how much was it if you don’t mind my asking?
Qsuite 2.1, was already installed in my comp. The drive came with nero 6 oem cd.
At the moment there are the external version only available here in Puerto Rico, $149.99.
Thanks for the information DVD_PREDATOR
Hmm…, curious if Quikee’s WOPC tool is working with 1650/1655 drives.
It seems that there’s no problem reaching 16x. Can you tell us what is your setup, ie connected via USB2.0 or Firewire, and the chipsets?
I just called Staples in my area and they don’t have the drive with specs 8x DVD+R DL and LightScribe.
I called mine also, no luck. It seems they are all over the world except in the USA
Looks great for 3900 mbs, I wish I could get one in the mainland USA.
