Read alot of good things about this drive but I'm still lost about this whole retail and oem firmware business. No-one in my area sells the benq retail so it's oem if I decided to go with this drive. But from what I've read here, there's a process called cross-flashing...and what this does it change the oem 1620 to an official benq 1620???
Is there any reason(s) to believe that there woudl be sub-par performance from an oem 1620 then a retail? And do oem's use different hardware to manufacture the drive and therefore maybe the quality standards are not as high as from benq itself?
Or is it just as good to pick up an oem and cross flash to retail and be done with it.
Thanks for your patience on my lack of knowledge. :iagree:
