Question is indirectly related to the capabilities of this drive.
I purchased this a week ago. I inspected the contents of the box (retail) and found the plastic shell of the drive heavily scratched, as if some folk scrubbed it on a table or something - you know, like when a disk falls to the floor and you inevitably scratch it when you pick it up.
There's also fingerprints, specially visible on the wide black sticker that covers the rear. It's clear someone has manipulated this drive, but I have no means to know if this is from the factory or someone else has really used this drive before.
Given that these come in open bags and boxes that aren't sealed.. too many hands along the way, I don't know. The sticker says it was produced in mid July of this year, almost half a year now.
What do I do with this, do you folks have experience? The first BD drive I purchased came in similar condition and stopped reading within a year.
I wonder if it should have come with the plastic film covering the front, a sticker on the box preventing its tampering or similar.
