> John can you tell me how the tray is??
Very nice. No problems like LiteOn
> Great, thank you!!!
> This drive not to seems be perfect, but I like this drive :)
We also didn't said its perfect, and no-one is (at least so far). But CRW-F1 has many new unique features, compared to other products. Don't you agree?
> 1. Nearly 24x CD-RW speed.
Yes this one rule! 3:41mins for a full 74min disc!
> 2. Slow CD-MRW writing and reading speed though still faster than other drives.
Yes seems slight slower than other drives, even with 24X HS-RW media is much faster!
> 3. No true defect management yet but Yamaha will surely try to improve it through future firmware updates.
Even the CRW-F1 didn't worked with the EasyWrite test suite, that doesn't mean the drive cannot handle defects, but Yamaha said will fix this and as soon it works with EasyWrite test suite, we will re-test this. Don't worry!
> BTW, can we get Nero 18.104.22.168b (b for beta maybe) and InCD 3.32? I couldn't find them anywhere. I've been using 22.214.171.124 and 3.32.
Actually we have already 126.96.36.199 that will be posted shortly in the web. Be patient
