Bah, that’s just the Sony DRU-500A rebadge… the LDW-400D

If you didn’t notice, it has been out for weeks now.


#3

Bah,

Little better price though…


#4

and for when are the “real” liteon drives expected, or are the first drives all rebagged drives too ?


#5

mhhh… I have heared these Sony-DVDRWs are bulit by Lite-On.
I think only the firmware is different.


#6

Where can we get the firmware for the new Lite-On DVD burner.

Things i heard about the sony drive aren’t that great…
(plenty of dead drives already , problems with dvd media etc)

So i would not like to have one of those.
Currently i have the nec nd1100… cheap and good.

anyway, I only hope liteon is going to produce their own dvd writers. So they are as good as their cd-writers :slight_smile:
The sony dvdwriters are just expensive and the quality of the drive is questionable. (imho)
