That's the mystery of I/O Magic drives, Who actually made it?
I've got 2 of them:
First I/O: Genuine benq 1620 with the original fw of B7C9 out of the box.Still burns today with over 3000+ backups.
Second,EMPA of Middle East FCZO.FW version is A07F, I may have updated it to the A07R before I pulled it?
I purchased from same staple's store 2 months later turned out the be the EMPA drive and total pc of crap.I pulled that drive out after I ordered a genuine benq 1620 to replace it. It still sits in it's original box.
I got a gem and a dud!
For a chance at a Benq 1670, I may have to risk it tomorrow?
