I bought this drive a few days ago and i don't recommend anyone to get this. I tried the the 1.3 and 1.4 firmware and i get VERY bad burn results. Anything burned using TYuden003 (Plextor), MCC04 (Verbatim), MBIPG101 R05 (Imation) media have a quality rating from 40 - 75 with Pifailures up to 18. I put my NEC 3540 back in and everything is up par again (94/95 to 97% for Plextor and Imation With Pifailtures up to 5-7)
This drive is a big no no. I am going to return it. My opinion: Avoid at all cost.
