The Sony DRU-710A burner is based on the Lite-On SOHW-1633S. In fact, Lite-On now makes all the burners for the Japanese giant. This one is based on the same chipset, the MT1828E / MT1816E from MediaTek. Sony calls the failure-protection system Power Burn, but it has exactly the same functions as Lite-On's Smart-Burn.
