Well i have a question.Here goes i’m looking to replace my NEC3500.
If you DEE-27 or LIGGY would please advise which drive MFG or drive model would be a good replacement i.e. another nec,lity,benq and so on.
My nec has done me very well and you two have done an awesome job on the firmwares so i would like your honesty on what would be a good replacement.
My media is basic verb’s, fuji, ritek=ridata 8x media +r’s -r’s and fuji 16x =ritekf1
usually what bestbuy has on sale but i’ve kept it to fuji’s and the verbs my ritek ridata is usually from newegg.
P.S. i don’t post to much usually i figure things out by searching but on this matter your opinion does matter to me.
The AD-7170 and AD-7173 are very good in my experience.
No drive IMO messures up to the ND-3500. If it’s not broken, hang on to it.
Well thanks for the reply.
No the 3500 is still tick’n.
But was looking for another drive to put in my other system the 3500 is not available
So i thought i would ask the experts for advice.:>).
[I]Sorry for interrupting this conversation, but…[/I]
By the way, avoid Ritek’s [B]8x[/B] DVD[B]-[/B]R (dash) media, RITEK G05.
It’s known to have bad stability.
(Ritek’s DVD[B]+[/B]R (all speeds) and [B]16x[/B] DVD[B]-[/B]R are ok though.)
Check your discs for readability!
If transfer rate tests (CD-DVD Speed benchmarks) don’t look good anymore, it’s time for a new backup.
Well my batch of riteks -r’s are from 3 years ago. Sounds like i may have to avoid my future purchase of the minus’s.
Also what does this mean=DON’T BUY RITEK BLANK MEDIA!
Ritek is on the forefront of RFID implementation into DVD and its HD successors!
