Thanks for checking with BenQ. I just read in another thread that CES is starting up so I guess the firmware update will wait.
Have you started testing the 1655 yet or do you intend to wait for a firmware upgrade?
It depends on which happens first, me finishing the LiteON SHW-1635S review, or the firmware coming out.
If the firmware comes out before I finish the review I'm working on, then I'll have been waiting for the new firmware.... if it doesn't come out while I'm working on my current review, then I won't
Actually, more seriously, once I finish the LiteON review, if the new firmware isn't out yet, I'll probably stick to testing 8x media only, and save the higher speed media for the new firmware, which will undoubtedly come out during the reviewing process. Normally with BenQ, several firmwares come out while I'm reviewing their drive
Punch Cards -> Paper Tape -> Tape Drive -> 8" Floppy Diskette -> 5 1/4" Floppy Diskette -> 3 1/2" "Flippy" Diskette -> CD-R -> DVD±R -> BD-R
