Hey everyone, I just got the 1620 after reading so many good reviews on it on this forum, flashed it to the latest firmware B7T9, and i must say its an amazing drive, rips really well, even scratched discs, burned two very low quality dvd-r discs and came up with really good scans with nero!
Thanks to all of you for recomending this amazing drive
Welcome robin5306, I'm glad your new Benq drive works fine. Happy burning to you.Ã hope not every new Benq owner will post a new thread here because it's going to be very bussy on this forum with new threads.
Philips-BenQ Digital Storage (PBDS) seems to be doing well because Digitimes reports that the company now is shipping over one million DVD burners per month which is close to Taiwan's largest ODD manufacturer Lite-On IT's numbers. The increased demand for PBDS' DVD writers has however led to a problem with short supply of pick-up heads from Philips according to BenQ's Imaging Network Business Group vice president William Wang. :bigsmile: :bigsmile:
I hope BenQ keeps selling the drives. That'll just mean more support, better drives and lower prices for the rest of us!
Glad to hear about your positive experiences with a BenQ DVD writer. I have two BenQ DW1620 burners and love them as well. Happy burning to you.
