I know many people use the toshi 1502 and stick with the 1012 so upgrade to the 1816, DAE is greatly improved and also some fixes for dvd-r.
Also people with the new version of the 1502 (firmware 1002)may wan't to check out the page.

Yes the new 1816 firmware speeds up the DAE quite a bit but quality of the extracted DAE is still bad.
