Hi,Iâ€™m currently looking for which burner to buy and I found out that Benq and Sony 52x24x52 uses Lite on drive. So Iâ€™m trying to find out if this is true or not? Does anyone know where I can find more reliable evidence of this? and if this is true would Benq have same performance as liteon? because Benq has 2 years warranty on it. So Iâ€™m not sure which one to buy
Thanks for any info.
BenQ do still produce their own drives.
But you're right about sony....thay are produced by Lite-On.
Compared to BenQ I would of course go for the Sony/Lite-On.....
At the time when I bought my drive, I considered going for the sony one... but it was almost twice the price of liteon! So why the heck should I spend that much more just to get a brand-name version of the same thing??
Benq split off from Acer. Here is an Acer OEM Lite-ON which I was surprised to see: http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduct.asp?description=27-106-302&DEPA=1
I have never seen a Benq branded Lite-ON yet though.
I would also recommend the Sony.
