WHat happen to your BenQ 1620?
The thread TCAS mentioned above is, IMO, due to BenQ 1620, NEC 3500/3520, Plextor 712A/716A, LG 4163, and older drives. Pointing to that thread hardly answer the question since the drives in question are new. The 1640 is not even out in the US yet. Maybe someone should make a new poll based on specific drives --not brand, but later when 1640 is out for a while for a fair poll…
I personally would defenitely go for the LG GSA-4163B, but they’re all good drives.
