The technical characteristics and the appearance of the CRW2410S are
very close to the Sanyo BP-1500 recorder, on which the Asus's drive is
based on. That is why it is not surprising that the firmware versions of
both drives are identical.
Below you can see a chip from Sanyo (LC898098Y UF8 1FK3G).
Here is what the Nero says you about the drive:
The design is unsophisticated:
A traditional rectangular tray with roundish corners, a little recessed
headphones jack, a mechanical volume control, a roundish tray button, two
one-color LEDs and an emergency ejection hole. There is also a digital-out
on the rear panel.
When recording at the highest speed the buffer lacks for stability,
and jumps from 80 to 97% for the CRW2410S are normal.
The drive whistles a little during operation, though no noise
or vibration can be noticed.
