well, that’s basically the issue. I’m looking for a new drive for a new system too and I put my eyes on a that one, the Optiarc AD-7201S. do you think that drive really worth?
I had a pioneer, a sansung and a Lite-On and I wasn’t fully satisfied with anyone that’s because I chose this time to give a try to Optiarc. the pioneer 109 was ok but it doesn’t support bittseting on rw media and 100 min cds. the samsung 202, due some problems with my system, was wrong flashed (= r.i.p. “piece of yunk”) but before that happend the quality and performance wasn’t too good (that was because i start cheating). and the Lite-On 20A4h is ok but the quality isn’t too great, doesn’t scan cds and I had some compatibility issues.
that’s what my should have (in this order ;)):[ol]
[/li][li]bitsetting on any + media (DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD+R DL)
[/li][li]scan cds, dvds
[/li][li]good burning quality of course, but, I don’t care if it’s not top quality with good quality I’m satisfied
[/li][li]and should be one of the ALL-IN-ONE type, the more things it have the better. (DVD-RAM, LightScribe, 100 min cds …)[/ol]
I didn’t find too much info about the 7201S (and 0 reviews) then do you know if it could meet my specs?
I’m specially worried about the bitsetting funcs. I heard about the liggy’s modified firmware and the binflash util but I don’t have it clear. not sure if that tools fully works on the 7201S.
and finally, of course, tell me what other drives you think it could be ok for me, please.
thanks just for read me
