    "Now THIS was really impressive. The NEC ND-2500A is simply the King of write quality, even when writing 4x discs at 8x speed. No other writers we have reviewed do even come close to this one in terms of writing quality. It gets a huge plus in our book for perfect writing quality, but on the other side it also gets a tiny minus for being slow at 8x writing compared to other 8x writers." - Quote from cd freaks review

    I thought about getting the drive but decided on the liteon instead its seem a more "all-round" burner than the NEC is picked up the DRW-1S81 which is the OEM of the liteon 811. I got this for £58 which is a bargain for the 851 is over £80 :)

    I have the ND-1300A, wonder if I could flash it to have 8x instead of 4x ;)

    NEC's feels like nice solid machinery compared to the flimsy, noisy Lite-on's build quality. It also appears the CDFeaks folks weren't as impressed with the 8X Lite-on.

    well as your first question was

    _NEC DVD_RW ND-2500A according to my Device Manager

    I would not pay too much for any DVD writer at the moment for 2nd to 3rd 1/4 dual layer burners will be surfacing and no matter "what" you uses of the drive are there are only benifits.
