First of all, the link you posted is to a Lite-On designed drive, not a BenQ as we learned to know it.
Why? For me and I hope also for a majority on this forum, BenQ DVDRW’s has been synonym with BenQ designed drives holding Philips Nexperia chipset. And AFAICS the latest “BenQ” DW18** and DW20** are all Lite-On and MediaTek based drives.
That’s the reason why I don’t consider them as BenQ drives.
As per your topic question, if you can’t find a “pure” BenQ drive anymore go for a Philips one (also produced by Lite-On, but DVDR166*P1 series are still based on Nexperia). If you’r living in US, also check out this thread
No need to “jump” on Lite-On/ MediaTek bandwagon. There are many other (better?) drives out there from NEC, Samsung and LG
Bottomline; the next BenQ drive’s to get are BW1000/EW100G…
Unfortunately, Santa Claus won’t bring me a Blu-Ray drive this year.
