Very nice, I loved these drives, all the Nexperia drives were great but this one was special. Its just too bad that they retired the chipset. I always wondered whether it sould be adapted to SATA.:wink:

DW1640 was the first BenQ DVDRW drive that matured during the years with with help from many firmware updates.

What made it special?
Not sure I remember it all right (hmm, we are now back in -05), but this was the first BenQ DVDRW burner that got it’s full potential and futures out of [B]QSuite[/B] utility. Book type setting, Test write, QScan, WOPC ans Solid Burn. But best of all IMO DW1640 is the best drive for OwerSpeed and OwerBurn DVD+R’s.
And a perfect scanner. :flower:

(Okey Quikee [now retired member] enabled many of the mentioned futures/ tweaks on DW1620 as well. :bigsmile:)
