probably something to do with the 16x rip unlocked firmware i used to rip movies

the litey couldn't keep up

I was going to buy the litey 5235k combo but said what the hell this is only like $20 more

What made you select the NEC over this BenQ(that has just been reduced even further from normal price)? http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproductde ... 633&DEPA=0

probably faster ripping speeds...

sorry for going off-topic, but this picture from newegg (link posted above) doesn't at all look like my BenQ DW1620!

That's because you have a retail version, and the one pictured on newegg is an OEM version. I guess BenQ thinks the retail consumer deserves a more stylish drive, presumably to better differentiate the product. Personally I prefer the simpler look of the OEM version. But that's just me.

My favorite drives, looks wise, are the Pioneer Xl drives :)

Those are the coolest looking drives I've seen.

If this is off topic, sorry.

Out of those two Benq drives, the Oem looks better. It has a bigger eject button and is plainer looking.
