rate this thread
course, including dual layer in both formats. The last drive I got like
this was the NEC ND-3550A for a different computer a few months back. It
was only $35, and I'd say, a good deal. I'm making another computer and I
want another drive like it. Should I go with the ND-3550A again, or is
there some other drive by another manufacturer at a comparable price, but
is, say, faster or better? Thanks.

that Staples will have one for $20, after rebate, then).
NEC DVD burners don't seem to be the best at reading marginal disks but
may be the best writers, and with a couple of ND-2500As and an
ND-35xxA, I couldn't read scratched DVDs and marginal DVD+RWs that were
handled with ease by a BenQ 1640, BTC, and BenQ/TEAC DQ-60.
