3520a Firmware?

I’m a newbie to the dvdburner world. However, I picked up a 3520a and would like to know which firmware I should use? Hacked? Nec? I know about warranties…etc
Just need to know what is out there, and the benefits. Seems like there is a ton of information, and I’m having a hard time putting ot all together.

for modified firmware: http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=139533 use that if you want faster reading & faster burns along with bit setting for +R media.

…and a good read comparing modified to stock firmware: http://www.cdfreaks.com/article/178

This is a good source for the differences.


I have stayed with 1.UF from L&D. Every time I try another one I go back.
