I’ve been looking all over the net for details on this drive (Sony DRU-845AS) without success. Is this an Optiarc 7201S? Can anyone shed light on this drive? It’s simply listed as a 20x SATA with Lightscribe drive and costs just a bit more than an 840AK / V200A.
Would really appreciate more details on this drive. TIA!
EDIT: Found an almost similar product (from a Chinese site) listed as a DRU-845S. Does the A on the product model indicate anything special? Like additional software?
The DRU-845S has the following specs (dunno if it’s the same as the 845AS still - have to confirm this):
[li] DVDÂ±R 20x
[/li][li] DVD+RW 8x
[/li][li] DVD-RW 6x
[/li][li] DVDÂ±R DL 12x
[/li][li] DVD-RAM 12x
[/li][li] DVD-ROM 16x
[/li][li] CD-R 48x
[/li][li] CD-RW 32x
[/li][li] CD-ROM 48x
Any similarities with Optiarc/OEM drives already being sold? I’m thinking of getting one of these (along with a Litey for scanning, still waiting for the newer ones - iHAS4xx if it’s good), I just don’t want to regret it.
