Ok, as I work for TrustedReviews I guess I better answer the questions.
The review sample was a pre-release unit.
We don't do hard-core reviews such as CDFreaks or CDRInfo, but try to cater to a wider audience. I don't know if you noticed, but we don't specialize in DVD writers as such, but it is a popular subject, so we review them.
If you're really interested I guess I can plug the drive back in and get the firmware version for you and a screenshot of dvdinfo.
