[QUOTE=Millennium12;2564706]Is there a mentioning what chipset is in that box?
For the results I am not impressed - fairly average write quality sometimes too wobbly scans for my taste. Can not do many media formats just the most used formats are supported.
apparently manufacturing quality is declining[/QUOTE]
I have a 524 A from TigerDirect, and an Asus DRW-24B1ST from Newegg, both bought during the Black Friday sale. I use them only for DL writing with MIS Verbatim true 8X. Both drives are true LiteOn drives, and are good but not outstanding in DL writing. I would consider them good but not Revelation. My impression agrees with the review in DL writing quality.
