I’m very happy w/ my 2510 burning at 8x but both my DVD-ROM drives (LG and liteon 163 are no longer working and I now have to use my 2510 as the reader too.
I’m almost about to order the Aopen 1648 AAP chameleon for $36 shipped but see that the 3500 is only $67 at newegg shipped. How much better/faster is the Aopen as a reader/ripper compared to the 3500?
Will I benefit more from the faster burn speeds rather than the faster read speeds?
Also, when will a faster burner (20x or faster) come out? Will I be better off spending $36 for the Aopen and wait a few months for a faster burner?
Any advice/suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
