Which models of the currently available LiteOn DVD burners would make the best Disc Quality testers? (I can use either IDE or SATA drives)
I would say go to Newegg as well as Amazon and read their customer reviews on the liteon drive that your looking at and that will in part give a real world view of users experiences on the drives.
Yup - did that before posting this thread. Unfortunately - none of the currently available drives on Newegg user comments discuss the chips that are best for Disc Qiality Testing.
You haven't been getting any answers in the Newbies. I don't use Lite-on drives, so I can't help.
So, I'm moving your thread into the Lite-on forum in hopes of better responses for you.
All of my Liteon drives do a great job of scanning but if I had to pick one driveas the best of them all it would probably be my real true iHAS524-98 A drive and the next best drive would have to be my ASUS DRW-24B1LT cross flashed To theLite-On iHAS424 the slowest scanning drive I have is my iHAS 124-04B which is a true iHAS124-04 Liteon drive they all have the MTK chip-set in them. :iagree:
I have a Asus DRW-24B1ST - would it be a good Disc Quality tester?
(hopefully without crossflashing)
It should do just about as good of a job scanning as a real Liteon drive does Iknow I tried mine before crossflashing them and they all done pretty darn good the best way to know for sure is just try it and see how it does. :iagree:
Thank you VERY much!!
(4x or 8x or.........?)
Hey bigmike7, the DRW-24B1ST is a very nice scanning drive, I have both the a and b series of these drives and I like them both. I also have them crossflashed to 324's but there scanning abilities have not changed at all. The ihas124's scan about the same also. I scan everything @ 8x.budzos
Thank you SO much for that info!!
(Mine doesn't say A or B - just says 24B1ST-25 - but the seriel number starts with A)
Happy to help. I've been busy so I don't get on here as much as I used to. My 5 year sonhas been taking priority lately.budzos
From what I've read on the forums, your best bet for quality testing would be to use your "on the shelf" Benq 1640
Oops - old/overlooked list.
(btw - the BenQ 1640 is a GREAT Disc Quality tester - but IMO the LiteOns are superior DVD testers - and the 1640's came out 3-4 yrars ago)
