My ND-3540A died yesterday, and luckily I found the GSA-H62L on sale for $50. It doesn’t do PI/PIF error scanning, but based on what I read the write quality is so good that it doesn’t matter basically. Plus I only use good media like Verbatim or TY.
Anyway, I’m really disappointed in the read speed of pressed DVD-ROM’s, particularly dual-layer. 5x? Are you kidding me? SATA is nice, and I only want to have one drive in my case because it’s very small. I would hate to put in my old BTC DVD-ROM IDE drive.
Will there be custom firmware that allows this drive to rip at full speed?
