External burner - lg 5163 or benq EW162i?

vbimport

#1

is benq EW162i better then lg 5163? both are external burners.
I read that benq 1620 internal had a lot of problems. what about this external benq EW162i? did this one had any problems?


#2

anyone?


#3

Both are good.

The disadvantage of external benq is that the working firmware (47L9) is several steps older than the internal one.


#4

The internal model remains the same in the external model for both LG and BenQ.

I personally think it’s best to have a 2-bay or 4-bay or even 8-bay external case and buy internal drives separately.


#5

if the external benq 162i model = internal benq 1620 then how come the firmware is different?
what about lg 5163? is its firmware same as that of lg 4163?


#6

The modified firmware allows UMDA3 to compensate the losses of the USB interface.


#7

GSA-4163B (internal) firmware = GSA-5163D (external) firmware, but you can’t use 5163 firmware in 4163 or 4163 firmware in 5163 (unless you use a modified firmware.)
