probably in wrong place but

officemax had pacific digital 8x burners for sale today 69 after rebate.

if you are going to buy one make sure you get one with a 4 as first digit in the serial those are the liteons 851/811

p as first digit in serial signifies a BTC

in addition if you go here you can print a $30 off 150 staples coupon that officemax will match and then you can get the $30 25 pack of memorex (usually ricohjpn01) along with the burner and the dvd’s will actually be free :slight_smile:

They also had some NEC 2500’s too, I got one of those. Serial was 41a etc. can be b,c too I’ve heard. They also have Kypermedia drives, depends on your luck. My stores also had BTC and a 851 that started with 42. My 811 has been a dud so I wanted to try a NEC.
They hadmany drives this time, Ibought early and went back today at 1 pm to get the diference and they still had big stacks of both types of drives.

I got a PD today @ OM and the serial starts with number 4, but the rest are numbers and letter. Seems to be an NEC, which I have two of already, the NEC 1000 and NEC 1100. Both drives have been great and really realiable, too!

I have yet to open mine fearing it was the dreaded BTC, but now after reading another member getting the same serial# I might open and install Monday to see how it goes.

I may go back and try for the Lite-On later in the week for my secondary PC.

look at my post above, if it’s 41letter rtc it’s a 2500 :slight_smile: Mine burned 2 disks my 811 wont touch with very low erros at 6x.


#6

Can lite-on 811 burn 4x +R disk at 8X?


#7

Yes it can do many at 8x if you get a good one, there are also speed ripped firmwaresby Packman and others that unlock speeds for most plus media.

Picked up 2 tonight at two different OM. ser#4284xxxx and ser 4284xxxx were both 811S. Let hope these are better than the POS 411s that I got. First burn with Memorex 4x -> Ricoh’s at 4x on the 411 with FS0F fw using nero 6.0 yielded average PI=1013 and PO=105. (No I didn’t forget a decimal place, although I wish I could)

Considering these high errors the disk plays fine in my standalone players and no read error using an Optorite DD0401 and dvdinfopro.

Really wanted a NEC but no luck, the one OM had about 10 drives all 47xxx and 42xxxx.

If anyone reading this thread lives in thePortland Oregon metro area and wants a NEC 2500 cheap get over to the Gresham store today. As of 10 am they still had 5 boxes of PD drives in the back and they all had 41a serials which are 2500’s and some with a 10 which I have no clue what they might be.
They did not have any liteOn serials left and neither did the Mall 205 store. I wanted a 851 as I got the 2500 during last weeks sale.
