I have had enough of the slow:Z and noisy:a CDR/DVD-reader player in my HTPC!
I’m going to replace it with a PX-712A, currently installed in my main computer (and make good use of the “Silent mode” feature. )
I’m thinking of buying a NEC 3540 for my main rig. (Woho, a new toy to play with! )
Is there any reason why I shouldn’t? I will not buy another Plextor drive due to their ridiculous “lawsiut” against pxlinux, so don’t bother to recommend them.
Pioneer DVR-109 is also under consideration.
What do the experts say? The NEC-or Pioneer-drive?
