This drive is sold in Taiwan. I don’t recognize it as either BenQ, Lite-On, or AOpen, the most likely manufacturers for a Taiwanese brand. I would guess Optorite, but the location of the eject hole and the LED is different… anybody have any more information on this burner?

This is definitely not a BenQ drive. BenQ don’t have audio jack or volume control, their LED is on the right, the eject hole is in the center, and they have one button. Basically, the external features of this drive are a complete mistmatch with a BenQ.
