After I release CG5E and CY58, I will be starting to spend more time looking at the 3S firmware. Also as I now finally have a 3S drive that works, I can carry out patch testing and know the results are valid.
I was kinda hoping I would not have to do a quality patch for the 3S drives, as I really thought Liteon would get their act together, but it just doesn't seem to be happening, even with the 1673S :sad:.
I still can't understand why Liteon has not gone down the path of WOPC/AOPC like NEC and Benq. Half their problem is that they can't compensate for changes in the media as it moves towards the outside of the disc and for changes in batch quality. Maybe one day they will see the light.
