[QUOTE=coolcolors;2464944]Figures. It would be nice if they informed online buyers of such switches so we can buy the product we want not some faked named knock offs that isn’t a true liteon chipset. Well now I know which drive to purchase here. Lite on should be ashamed they should at least be responsible enough to inform customers of the bait and switch.[/QUOTE]
The Optiarc AD-7240S is a good drive (well, I don’t like it for burning CD-R’s, but I am a dinosaur). I imagine Sony has a bulk of them and influenced LITE-ON to re-badge them to move them. Still, the models are confusing, but that was probably by design to get them out the door. Most will be happy with the Optiarc drive.
