Hello all - DVD-R/RW noob/1st time post here - howdy!

I notice NewEgg.com has the 1610 on sale today for $83.00 - Does anyone know if this unit is upgradeable with the same firmware as the 1600? (in other words, all use the same chassis/drive mech/chipset?)

Thanks - I'm in the process of building out an Antec Aria box and this looks like a nice quiet and speedy drive unit...

I have heard that 1610 laser is different thatn the 1620. It is possible to be ugraded but not safe to work.

b7h9 has been leaked quite some time now and has cause lock ups with certain -r media. The upgrade from 1600->1620 is also at the benq site and its fw b7h9 aswell.

Is anyone using this official upgrade from 1600->1620 experiencing lock ups, as other have been with -r media?

I wonder if it's the same as the leaked firmware? The file size is slightly different. Hopefully they did some fine tuning to it. I have had no problems with the beta firmware, except with some CMC 4x. It locked up after about 12 per cent when burning them. Richoh 4X burnt fine.

I too was wondering if there was a difference with the leaked firmware. I hope there is because as I said some -r media caused lock ups but not all.
