@Zevia, I noticed you have both 1650 & 1655 … If I don’t care for lightscribe … as far as performance which of the two drives would you recommned???
BTW, I have an internal 1640 with BSRB firmware and I love it … but I just want to cover myself if it dies I need an immediate back-up. I have done over 4000+ burns with the 1640.
I keep hearing and reading that 1650 and 1655 are basically the same drives … but I think I also saw another posting saying that 1650 is a bit quieter than 1655 …
