You Say " I seen that, "based on" 'usually' means rebadged "
No it dosen't Based on means Based on ie:- Compatible , Simular to !!!
You Say " Have you a source for this list please "
Yes and it is a very good one!
Will I tell you where it is No !!![:p] Do some research and I am sure you will find it (Eventually) !!!
You Say "Cyberdrives aren't 'based on' anyone else's designs, but they do use the same chipsets as other manufacturers. For example one thing that leads me to believe that list is 'false' is because the CWO38D was the first drive in the world to support 12X RW speeds and the Phillip's you list as 'based on' chipset only has a max rewrite of 10X "
The Yammaha 3200e only is listed as having 10x re-write but with the new Firmware and Compatible 12x CDRW Disks It will quite easily Write at 12x and I am sure there are many others that will do it as well !!!
You Say " That Cyber Drive in fact uses OAK chipsets and uses the same ExacLink ICs chipsets as the Mitsumi CR-4808TE, so I dunno where the Phillip's came in there "
Oh well my Source must have made a mistake but I am sure when you find it you will see that is what THEY say and the funny thing is you love the product that I got the Source from (That was a hint to help you find it
You Say " Compatible with" could mean lots of things... I.e. MMC read commands etc. Can you please be a little more specific?!! "
I already have and even you should understand it now !!!
