Which one?

#1

Which one should i buy - Phillips DVDR1640P or BenQ DW1620 or BenQ DW1620 Pro?

Is there any hope for any of these to get 8X +RW?

Which has more overspeeded medias? And which one has more firmware updates :slight_smile:

Thank you :slight_smile:


#2

also forgot to ask - are DVDR1640P and DVDR1620K firmwares compatible?


#3

mrQQ…none…chipset and hardware different for 8x+RW…so if you can wait…wait…

it will be here soon…

more firmware updates?..BenQ it is…


#4

Hmm thats a pity… it took them ages to bring DVDR1620K here, so it’ll take at least half a year more…

so are all these firmwares compatible with each other?


#5

YEah, all are interflashable.You’ll need the .cvt files though.


#6

so if i buy Philips DVDR1620P, I can flash it to DVDR1640K, BenQ DW1620 and BenQ DW1620 Pro without any problems?

can official firmwares be converted to .cvt?


#7

the .cvt’s based on extracted official firmware can be found with the necessary tools here:

It’s easy and only takes a minute or two to crossflash


#8

hmm, then I still have no idea which one should I choose - BenQ, or Philips…


#9

Best way to bet the Benq 1620 and then update firmware to the most up to date.

Or wait less than a month hopefully.


#10

I’d go with the BenQ over the Philips to be honest. Saves headaches and worries over flashing issues (if any exist and I don’t think they do…) and BenQ so far has proven to be very quick with firmware updates. :wink:


#11

However I don’t think there is a need to crossflash Philips to BenQ… 3.2 firmware does a nice job.

uhm but i heard Philips has these nice leds or smth? :slight_smile: and i dont really like BenQ looks :stuck_out_tongue:
