[quote=Bob;2068545]Hi zebad so what are you saying? For years you begged others to do what? It’s a crappy reader and DL burner but it’s only good for SL burning? I don’t quite understand your point here. I was thinking about purchasing this same drive. The 7203S that is.
I haven’t bought a NEC since my 3500 which still burns fine but it’s not in any of my pc’s or external enclosures anymore. My first NEC drive was a NEC 2510 which i really liked but sold to a neighbor…[/quote]
My point is that the 7203S is good enough to stay in my setup.
Making it a good drive.
It is, if you have only space for one.
An acceptable reader/ripper & excellent burner.
However if you (which I know you do) like me have more than one drive.
In my experience may use other drives for reading - ripping - scanning etc.
So in my setup I use the 223 for reading/ripping.(Possibly f/w holding back this drive as a burner).
The 20A1P & 1655 for scanning (forum use only).
Leaving the Pioneer & NEC to burn.
With the likely combination of 215D for DL & 7203S for SL.
The LG for (I have no idea).
