I’ve been using my 3520a for years now, and it’s still my main burner with the old L&D 2.U5 FW. Nothing but perfect burns from it. I’m thinking about upgrading and looking for a tried and true newer burner to replace it. Would prefer one with lead-in and lead-out reading capabilities.
Would like to stick with NEC since at the time I got this burner Lite-On was absolutely awful when it came to quality DVD burns and I RMA’ed 3 of them before I asked for a credit toward this NEC. Other brand suggestions are welcome though. Must produce high quality burns and be a “workhorse”. i.e. I’d rather not burn 100 dvds and have it blow up on me the next day. Good EAC and DVDFab ripping capability would be a plus as well.
