New BTC 1008 Review

#1

I bought this drive as an I/O Magic, but it was a really good at $49.99 after $30 rebate at Staples. It was a rebadged BTC 1008. I’m posting a picture of what I received in the box, and the sticker on the drive. Looking for a very inexpensive drive, this is “rock bottom” for now and probably the summer. I posted a full review at epinions

Check out these shots from DVD Info pro from my BTC 1008. It was reading a DVD+RW disc, will repeat when faster nonrewritable media available.

Just One little question How do you know it’s a BTC drive?


#4

The stickers are very obvious, and the model name is printed there too.

If you look at the stickers, it is obvious it is a BTC drive. It has accepted the 0758, and 0059 firmware updates with no issues. By accepting a firmware update it proves it is the BTC drive.
