I posted on the general forum, nobody replies, so try my luck here:

I bought two of them, trying to test out. After several tries I couldn’t decide which one to keep.
The NEC 2500a is supposed to be better, with 8x on both + and -, but the read of DVD-Video is locked. Ripping is slow. Even with the firmware unlocked.

The nec 2500a write TDK 4X DVD+R (Ricon disk) at 6x, the LiteOn write at 8x. They both write memorex DVD-R at 4x(CMG).

One day, my PC, DELL 4600 suddenly lost NEC drive, it was on, and the drive (e:) disappeared, and I have to restart the PC.

The NEC reading has much more problems than LiteOn, I am using DVD Shrink 3.1, the NEC can’t finish reading 3 of the DVDs, with LiteOn, no problem.

How to compare the write quality? The review on the net says NEC 2500a has bettern DVD write quality, how?

I want to keep the LiteOn, however, my settop dvd player can’t read DVD+R, with the 8x DVD-R, the NEC 2500a is supposed better. which one? any help?

I have done comparitive burns/scans on the NEC 2500 and LiteOn 411 with various media posted here:

The 411 is almost identical in write strategy and quality to the 811. That thread is proof that the NEC has better write quality.

If you don’t have a DVD-ROM drive go for
liteon else stay with NEC

with Liteon you can always use the 'Book Type" tool and set your DVD+R to DVD-Rom and it should work in most DVD stand alone players, plus there is no reason why you shouldn’t be able to burn DVD-R with the Liteon, the hardware and software in your computer also plays a part in the difference between a good :wink: or bad :frowning: burn
