or does a burner wear down faster if you also use it as a reader (I need to convince my wife)?
Nope, writing wears a drive down faster I guess. But next year I am gonna buy a new BenQ anyway (maybe the DW1665 ), so who cares?
Thanks to you my friend, I got my BenQ so fast
check out the price at zercom.nl, it's even lower! I think prices will rise when they will be out of stock fast.
I am curious about how well your Platinums will perform!
edit: my drive was also made in China, so all that stuff about made in China drives perform worse than drives made in Malaysia, I think it's just based on rumours...
