I've read on this forum that Memorex True8x drive is Pioneer 107 with a different front bezel. I was originally thinking of bying "the real thing", in other words A07. But Memorex is being sold at amazon.com for only $139, so it definitely looks like a better deal.
But here's what concernes me. First of all, is it the same exact thing as A07, just a different look?
And the second thing is - can I apply firmware from the Pioneer web site to the Memorex drive? I don't want to rely on Memorex to publish Pioneer's firmware updates, besides the firmware on Pioneer's site is 1.13, and the one on Memorex's is 1.12.
Thanx in advance for suggestions,
