Is the BenQ 1625 as good at scanning discs as the 1620?

Postby MonsterMan on Sat Mar 11, 2006 10:22 am

I love my 1620 & 1655, and don't really like putting so much wear and tear on them from the constant scanning. The 'egg has the 1625 back in, and I could slap it in an external USB case and only use it for Lightscribe and scanning - if it's as good as scanning as the 1620. I know the burn quality isn't great, but my other drives have great burn quality so I don't care about that...
BenQ 1655, BenQ 1620, LG 4167, Plex PX-716SA, Samsung SH-S162L, SH-S182M, Pioneer 111D, Lite-On SHM-165H6S and 1.9TB of HDDs to feed 'em and an X2/4800 to crunch for 'em.

The scanning hardware should be EXACTLY the same as the DW1620... but putting it in an external case may change the results. Unless the external case is capable of handling the sustained transfer rates needed for testing media (which is not a safe assumption!).
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

Hmm...well, I am putting together a 2nd system soon (something that doesn't suck the ol electricty down as much), might just slap it in there...
