New Lite-On Model Numbers: Do I Have This Right?

Can someone remind me again or point me to a list that breaks down all the new Lite-On model numbers, their old-name equivalents, and their chipsets? Lite-On is starting to get as confusing as LG when it comes to naming schemes. This is something that should be updated in the FAQ.

Do I have this breakdown right?

Have any of them been found to be the better burner?

Are the A6 series drives related to the A1 & A4 series drives?

Are the A8 series drives related to the A3 series drives?

Which drives can be cross-flashed to which other models?

iHAP120 = DH-20A6P (place chipset number here)
iHAS120 = DH-20A6S (place chipset number here)

iHAP220 = DH-22A6P (place chipset number here)
iHAS220 = DH-22A6S (place chipset number here)

iHAP122 = DH-22A8P w/o SmartErase (place chipset number here)
iHAS122 = DH-22A8S w/o SmartErase (place chipset number here)

iHAP222 = DH-22A8H w/o SmartErase (place chipset number here)
iHAS222 = DH-22A8L w/o SmartErase (place chipset number here)

iHAP322 = DH-22A8P w/ SmartErase (place chipset number here)
iHAS322 = DH-22A8S w/ SmartErase (place chipset number here)

iHAP422 = DH-22A8H w/ SmartErase (place chipset number here)
iHAS422 = DH-22A8L w/ SmartErase (place chipset number here)

iHAP622 = DH-22A8P w/ SmartErase & SecureDisk (place chipset number here)
iHAS622 = DH-22A8S w/ SmartErase & SecureDisk (place chipset number here)

The 20x iHAS120/220 series uses the latest chipset (not the A1/A4 chipset). There is no iHAP120/220.

The 22x 122/222/322/422 uses the same chipset as the 20A3P/S.

Each of the 20x and 22x drive uses a different chipset for PATA and SATA. There is no chipset difference for LightScribe or SecureDisk.

I don’t have the numbers off the top of my head but IIRC they are shown/discribed in the first few pages of the scans threads.

Thank you for the summary, CK. That was very helpful. :flower:
