Excellent, thanks for that very helpful answer.
TBH I am glad I asked this question now as looking at the new model number I never would have figured this was the new Liteon drives.
Can I ask will this new drive continue to have the excellent scanning abilities of the older Liteon drives?.
As I am largely looking for a SATA based replacement to my Benq 1650 as a decent quality scanner in my new all SATA system setup.
I already have the LG GGC H20L for burning, but it seems to have problems with disk quality scanning in Nero.
