No, DQ60 is bad. Very bad if initial reports are indicative.
Scans show that the write quality is not as good as the 1640. Some features of QSuite also do not work with the new drive (which is an OEM Teac drive, if I remember correctly).
Avoid this drive. Go with an OEM of the 1640 like the Sony or Plextor.

Yes, you can crossflash using one of the flashing tools like BQFlasher.
