Lite-On Model numbers

Can’t get any info from Lite-On, so hope someone here can help.

Lite-On website shows three 48x/12x/48x models

LTR-48125W
LTR-48125S
LTR-48126S

What’s the difference between them?

Ugh, I guess I’ll just answer it rather than tell you to do a search where you could have found this question answered MANY times.

LTR-48125W 
LTR-48125S

These two are both 5th generation Lite-ON drives. The difference is in the brand of memory used.

LTR-48126S

This is a 6th generation drive.

Ooops…sorry about that, but thanks for the reply anyway.

Any significant reason to buy 6th gen rather than 5th gen.

I can get a 48125S quite cheaply.

You can flash any 6th generation to 52x24x52 if you want.

OK…thanks
