Before anything else, thanks to Marco and all the BTC team for the fast response and solid products. I am for one a very very satisfied customer and I will keep getting BTC products.
My suggestions for the DRW1008IM firmware are only 2, besides the added media compatibility that BTC is taking very seriously:
- HD Burn support.
- Ability to upgrade firmware in a USB enclosure.
The HD burn support is what me made get an Optorite before giving it away. I understand that now I can use a DVD, but why waste a DVD for a 1.2 GB file if you already have many blank CDs capable of HD-burn? Also, my HD-burn CDs become coasters without a drive capable of reading them.
The second one is not as obvious, but for many of us who have the drive in a USB enclosure (for laptop usage mainly) taking it out constantly of the enclosure for a newer firmware is not convenient.
Besides those comments, so far very happy with my 1008IM... the same way I was with my CDRW IDE5224IM.
