411s or 811s?

I have read the oc review of 411s and when I decide to buy this recorder… surprise!!! :rolleyes: 811s is out. My questions are…

Is 811s as good as 411s (plus 8x recording feature)?
media compatibility is the same?
the actual firmware of 811s have the same problems that 411s have with F0B? Or the 811s firware is comparable (in compatibility issues) to last 411s F0F?
In definitive , What recorder buy, 811s or 411s?

The money is not problem and yes, I want lite-on, no other brands.

Thanks in advance.

Pd: excuse me for my poor english :stuck_out_tongue:

Hi and welcome! :slight_smile:

It seems so, but I do not have a LDW-811S myself so I can’t say for sure.

media compatibility is the same?

Yes FS0F and HS0E have the same media compatibility (but HS0E supports 8X writing to some DVD+R media of course).

the actual firmware of 811s have the same problems that 411s have with F0B? Or the 811s firware is comparable (in compatibility issues) to last 411s F0F?

HS0E fixed the compatibility issues for the LDW-811S, just like FS0F did for the LDW-411S.

In definitive , What recorder buy, 811s or 411s?

If you do not care about money, why not get the LDW-811S? :slight_smile:

I bought the 8x and found it to awesome so far, no problems using different types of media, tried lazer and princo to generic and ridata disks, i will say the ridata dvd+r 4xspeed record at 8x, nice bonus i think.

I took back my 411s and got the 811s for the same price (actually it was cheaper becuase i didnt have to pay sales tax!):wink:

around 149$ on pricewatch.
