They are both great burners at 8X/12X. I can't find a equal opponent at that speed. In addition, their media compatibility is huge. You are hard to burn UME001/NANYARJB/NANYACHX/SKC/LONGTEN001/OPTODISCR004 etc with other burners to get average quality. BenQ eats them with ease!
Though, I still use TY/Mitsubishi/Verbatim for my personal stuff.
I am under consideration to get a 164B to be a backup. :bigsmile:
