I finally kissed goodbye to the BenQ1620... :sad:
... and said hello to the BenQ 1640
Actually, it was an OEM Philips 1628 from Ebuyer (Â£23 + VAT). It's a nice small unit, isn't it? And surprisingly quiet, too. Nice.
Cross flashed to the 1640 with no problem and it is working fine, so far, though I have yet to produce my first burn... This will come very soon, and i'll post my scans.
