Hmmm, I wonder if it’s the same hardware as the 1633S (or even the 1213S) will nothing but improovements in quality throught firmware.
But what I’m really interested in the read performance of the drive. I don’t want it to read only DVD-ROMs and recordable media at 8x. I’ve seen drives reading recordable media at 16x and hope that the new Lite On (or the new firmware) will be capable of doing so, as well.
Otherwise I’ll have to purchase a DVD-ROM drive separetely. Does anyone know of a DVD-ROM drive that:
- Has acceptable performance in reading damaged media
- Reads all single layer medias at 16x CAV (or at least 12x)
- Is not speed locked in reading DVD-VIDEO (or can be unlocked with existing hacked-firmwares)
- Can run Kprobe or Plex tools
(am I asking too much?)
