[QUOTE=negritude;2456263]iHAS324-08 = Mediatek
iHAS324-98 = NEC[/QUOTE]
For what it’s worth, I picked up a LITE-ON iHAS124-04 (OEM) from newegg.com a few weeks ago and it appears to also use a NEC chipset. All I know for sure at this point is that when I do a quality scan of a burned test CD using Opti Drive Control v1.44 there is no information about jitter.
Also the ODC FE/TE test returns “Function not supported” (or such). My understanding is that this function is supposed to be supported by Mediatek drives.
Below is an excerpt from the ODC “Drive Info” report for this drive. (I think that Jan 2009 was the date of manufacturer, but I don’t want to pull the drive right now to double check.)
Product iHAS124 Y
Firmware version BL0W
Buffer length 2 MB
Serial number Y1199======
Extra information Jan07,2009
It’s not an exact match to a 7240S though since ImgBurn reports a slightly different set of functions enabled at burn time. (It shows something like “Smartburn On” for the Lite-On, but not for my 7240S.)
