Well, today I bought one of the last retail Toshibas SD-M1712. I'm quite confident it's of better quality than Lite-On, besides it's made in Japan.
interesting...mine is made in China.
manufactured May 2003. when was yours made, Han?
i'm surprised, i wouldn't have thought they manufacture the same drive in more than one plant.
i wonder if it means mine is not as well made...the old "made in Japan vs. made in China" debate...
