I just purchased the 812s w/firmware USOF.
Is there any real benefit in updating to the latest firmware USOJ?
Will it increase the drive's performance. Example: burning 4x media at 8x.
I know the the recent firmware updates for the 811s enabled it to burn certain 4x media at 8x.

Anybody have any experience with this new update?

Thanks
Dan

I have a 812S, and I didn't necessarily see any changes to burn speeds, but the book type setting is a bonus in the firmware!

I am just hoping they don't forget about the firmwares for this drive when they debut the Dual Layer drive. Also, as far as I can tell, the dual layer drive, and this drive are identical down to EACH INDIVIDUAL CHIP. Seems a firmware will enable this drive to be a dual layer recorder, however don't expect LiteOn to release it... they will want you to purchase the dual layer writer.

MP3Mogul, probably users will release special firmwares for the 812s->832s conversion...

Thanks for all of your input.
I just updated the firmware. I need the booktype setting options for my dvd burning.
Let's hope they offer a dual-layer update.

Emperor..... you are correct, I already have it, flashed it, and it's working fine...... I just wanted to use it for a bit to see how it holds up.... This is a very "inexpensive" drive to "me" and I don't care if it burns up, but I promise to put it to the test, over and over and see how it holds up. As stated above, this drive is identical, with a new label, and if LiteOn can release the new drive and support it, then the 812s with a conversion firmware should hold up just as well! I'll post back when I have definitive results!
