Good Idea or Not?

I spoofed my Lite-On 1653S(previously 1633S) to a Sony DVD RW DRU-710A. Was this a good idea or not? Also I’m wondering if there’s newer firmware out there. I only can find 2005, so I’m guessing that’s the latest?

If the Sony firmware offers better burns, then keep using it. Otherwise, the patched 1653S firmware from CK works well. The drive is archaic now, so there are no more firmware updates.
