I guess you're not the only one. I've read many post on different forums that the -r results are (very) dissapointing (very high errorrates or coasters). Looks like benq or the philips-chipset isn't able to burn -r(w) correctly. I think benq better can make the 16x0 burners just for +r(w) / +r9-dl and finetune it so they have the "perfect" + media burner.

When can we expect final review?


Soon, but the -R writing results are rather dissapointing...


Have you contacted Benq about the dissapointing -r results? If so, what did they say?

My 1600-1620 has done one minus with acceptable error rates at 4x, another type it stopped at about a gig and sat there so I rebooted rather then wait forever, another it burned at 2x but it was no good so yup minus still needs some work.
I also have a nice NEC 2500 and a crap 811 I use for testing and the ocassional cdr burn so at leasst for me all is not lost .
It seems to do about equal to the 2500 with plus so far as far as quality but wont over clock any 4x to 8 like the NEC yet.

Emperor when can we expect some scan to compare a real 1620 and an upgraded 1620?
I'm very curious to see if there are any differances in burnquality.

Yes i can confirm that the results with Verbatim 8X -R were very good, Dolphy for sure would be a long review, 27 pages

I have heard they are working on another firmware update and someone who has ties to someone estimated a end of September release date.

For sure BenQ have to update their firmware, results with most -R media weren't so good

Out of curiosity, did any medium grade media (not Mitsubishi or TY) DVD-R media work ok? Say Optodisc, Ritek, or Prodisc?
