From reading the previous posts, I got an impression that there are
at least 6 "flavours" of DW1620:
1) DW1620 bulk
2) DW1620 retail
3) DW1620A bulk
4) DW1620A retail
5) DW1620pro bulk
6) DW1620pro retail
Also, I understood that those flavours are interchangable, though
some work is needed to convert from one to another - the only real
difference between them is in their firmware, hardware-wise they are
exactly the same.
Is that right, or did I get something wrong?
Also, is it possible to tell what kind of flavour the drive is from it's looks
or are there some labels which document it - the only way for me to
buy BenQ is via the Internet, from an online retailer, and an info
presented there is not informative enough (they even got the wrong
picture there - DW1610 instead of DW1620), so I have to call them and
know what to ask if I want to get a more detailed information about the
flavour type available from them.
