This drive is out for quite some time, but user base is small.i do not see
much feedback so far.
recently its predecessor 5372 has got new f/w ver TU56 which adds 5x DL-9 burning to it, and some supposedly 'improved burning quality on 16x media'.
my Toshiba SD-R5372V is rebadged by Buffalo into DVM-RX16FB.
it comes with f/w ver BA12. ( for SD-R5372 rebadged, the f/w is BA53 and no further updates)
the faceplate is the same as 5372.
my BUffalo package comes with the black face panel, which i think it is really sweet. :iagree:
the drive is still made in Philippines.
