Well. I just picked one up. But it'll stay in the box until I've finished a few other things (like my tax return
). More questions later.
D_R: I still want to know why you prefer a 1640 (the one I mentioned yesterday was gone this morning BTW).
Well, I've found the DW1640 is a much better burner in general, and the quality testing results tend to be more inline with the performance of the discs tested.
This is based on having 2 DW1640s and 1 DW1655 and 1 DW1650.
I think Philips still supports the DW1640 with a cassette tape backup solution or something. RJW told me about it, but since I have no need for it, and it's not available in my market even, the fine details have slippped away from me.
