The 1673S is now available in the US. I want to replace my A07D.Does the 1673S need rip-unlock (firmware)?What is the prognosis for quality burns using 16x certified media?I just want to verify: I CAN do bitsetting / booktype on +R media, correct?
Welcome Read the The LITE-ON SOHW-1673S and SONY DRU-720A thread. With the current firmware the DVD burn quality is quite poor. The working bitsetting is not enough to be good drive.
Thank you for the reply.Yes, I read that report yesterday. But maybe it's (the mediocre results) to be expected with a new drive.
I am not sure I understood your last statement. Will this drive support bit setting?
yes, it supports bitsetting like all other liteys.
