I think it looks good, but I´m not a specialist for Plextor-graphs


#13

Newegg has the h44L instock for$31.99 what’s the chipset of this drive? Renesas or Panasonic?


#14

Same as the H42H/L > Renesas They will cross flash.


#15

Is there an initial review of the GSA H44N on the main CD Freaks web site?
If not can I have a summery of the forums review?

Cheers

P.S. rolling56 I take it you like Bettye Lavette.
