I’m not too sure which version of the iHAS124-04 newegg is selling wither it is
the MTK chipset or the NEC chipset. I bought a iHAS124-04 from tigerdirect
for the same price + shipping and it was the iHAS124-04 B version with the newer
MTK chipset in and it does very well at burning.
Here is the one I got it is OEM it is just the drive nothing else comes with it.
Lite-On IHAS124-04 $16.99 + shipping
you might want to consider this drive here also I bought one of them too and so far
I love it.
Lite-On iHAS524-98 $19.99 + shipping and comes in a Retail box with all the goodies.
But either one of the drives the 124 or the 524 will do a good job for you.
