They may not have had a lot of choice. BenQ looks to be shifting to the 1650, yet strangely no one has seen one yet. Some online shops are running out of 1640s and one shipped a DQ-60 to a CDFreak in its place. And, of course, the DQ60 isn’t really a BenQ at all, it’s a TEAC DV-W516E (and AKA Plextor PX-750 just to confuse things even more).
Personally, I really dislike this whole “rebadge” business by ODD manufacturers, and regardless of who does it. I can understand “HiValue” and “Maddog” doing it (because they don’t actually manufacture anything), but Plextor and BenQ?
Hell, let’s all do it. I’ll give my CDF login info to drpino and crossg and they can write all my future posts for me. :a
