I just placed an order for one of these babies
However, I’m stuck in a dilemma. My current setup consists of the following:
2 x IDE HDDS
1 x SATA HDDS
1 x Lite-On 52x CD burner
1 x Pioneer 107D
all of which are working fine.
The dilemma is, which one of the optical drives should I replace with the BENQ DW1640? The Pioneer 107D has served me very well, and still going strong after burning hundreds of DVDs. On the other hand, the Lite-On is an excellent burner which I use to rip protected CDs and burn audio/data CDs.
Oh, one more question, does the DW1640 stock firmware come with riplock, or would I have to flash it with a modified firmware?
