[QUOTE=wardog;2445768]Other than you’re using it externally vs me internally that’s what I received from NewEgg on my iHAS424-08, ZL1B.
Notice NewEgg has now [B]removed(Deactivated) the iHAS424-08[/B]??? Not being thrilled at knowing this and the seemingly rapid fw releases, last night I went and ordered two AD-7240S-0B’s. Be sending the 424’s back as I’m hunching something weird is going on with them.[/QUOTE]
Finally read your post carefully - at first I was interested in the ZL1N situation. I didn’t know Newegg had terminated the 424’s, I also wonder why, mine has worked just great.
I also got a LiteOn iHES208, this I have had real trouble with, the first one (@$109) went sour in 7-10 uses, it started reading scans off the chart compared to what the iHAS424 was reporting, and I got Newegg to replace it even though it was just past the 30 day replacement period, now the second one seems to read BD scans with more peaks in LDC and BIS errors, but base line is much lower than the previous one, the first one just started to go completely off the chart - all of a sudden. The second one also seems to read higher error values than the iHAS424. So I hope both of these drives aren’t ‘bad’ apples…
The Egg said if I had problems with the second one I would have to go to LiteOn for help, which I attempted to do w/ the first iHES208, because I thought I wouldn’t beable to return it, and LiteOn replied asking me to do a bunch of useless s_it, I had to write back a caustic reply, to which they sent me their service Ph#…They don’t seem too happy to help out with bad merchandise…might be a good idea to return 'em while you can…
