Try the Firmware Forums (don't have the link handy)
I'd be wary, just because it's been around and is still practically unknown. It's a 2x"-R" and 1x"-RW" so it's comparable to the Pioneer x04.

30+ burns later, I like it
was $100 cheaper than the a05 at the time, and about $30 cheaper than the a04.... but faster than a04 on CDR stuff
The only problem I've had... and I don't think it's the drive's fault, probably bad media... DVD-RW, made by Princo... toasted 3 of them.... each disk failed at about 1% of the burn. Disc wouldn't eject. Software wasn't stopping the burn, only thing to do was power off and back on to get teh drive to open again.
the same burn on different media worked fine.
those 3 DVD-RW.... the drive will no longer recognize them... so I can't erase them... also used a few other of the same Princo blanks, and they are working fine.
There is a new firmware out... supposedly makes it recognize more blanks... but I can't flash it... I don't have a floppy drive :-)

i did have problems with cheap DVD-RW's.
but, i have been able to burn cheap DVD-R's at 2x that are not rated for it (Optodisc gold)
