From c4evaspeaks.com:

We’ve known this drive was in the pipeline since back in early June, and now the Lite-On 1175 DG-16D5S has finally begun to make its appearance in retail units. Check out photos of the new drive here.

The status table has been updated to include this new drive. As usual, please contact an op in the #c4e channel on EFnet IRC if you have one of these drives and are willing to send it to the team or if you can provide a full fw dump (whether current unlocking methods still work for this drive, has yet to be determined).

Thank you to “R” for providing initial insight about this drive several months ago, and to Fresh101 for his photos confirming the drive’s presence in retail units.

Wasn't this rumored to be in development xbox's?

I very much doubt ms would release a drive with no epoxy.

Hitachi Slim was not defeated.
Yeah, but you got to wonder....

Why if the hitachi has not been defeated.... do you not see them in a lot more 360's????????

Sometimes i think M$ want you to buy more 360's and ban them occasionally so you have to buy a new one to play Live.....?????

If you could never flash your drives....and then ban you. how many more 360's would they sell????? answer... a lot less. ;);)

This new drive arrived to my country by a month now, and my country is always the last one to get brand new stock. I would say Microsoft is sending all Hitachi 0502 and DG-16D5S since September 2011 because the MRF date was from August.

im pretty sure the only reason sh*tachi slim hasnt been more of a priority to c4 is because of its low numbers,until now anyway,it seems that the last 5-6 consoles i opened that had manu dates of 2011-now have had hitachis in em. believe me,when huge numbers start showing themselves c4 will knock it on out.
far as this new liteon drive goes,has anyone out there tried any of the current unlock methods on this drive?

i guess ms figures they will flood market with dif drives to keep c4 busy.just my opinion anyway.
