So if the Stock # on the label found on the side of the box is 4824P-052 then does that mean I have the 4824P drive?
Yes it should be just look on the lable for D.xC where x is a leter symbolizing the firmware version if it is there it is a Benq 4824p the most recent version is D.UC which adder MRW support.
LiteOnGuy purchaced one earlier this year and just flashed his with the new firmware from Benq's site. Khypermedia dose not have any firmware posted.
My 4824P Benq drive is a rebaged drive which came out of a Cendyne box. Which I am currently using the Benq firmware instead of the firmware Cendyne has posted.
The latest firmware for the cendyne drive which is on their site all depends on which of the mayn drives you got. as you can see here
the cendyne model number is CDICD00118 then you have to go by their description for selecting the proper firmware for the drive which is in the box.
This is all very confusing.
It wouldn't be if they would stick with one drive manufacture instead of picking a different one every month.
Personaly I would go with the Khypermedia 4824P In my use it seems to be a good drive.
