How fast is the NEC 2500

…at ripping with the hacked firmware? I’m waiting for mine to be delivered, but also see a cheap 16x dvdrom drive on sale at OM. I don’t need an extra drive for ripping if the NEC is adequate though. Thanks ahead of time.

Single layer 12x CAV, dual layer 8x CAV.

Thanks! Sounds fast enough for me. Those are maximum speeds and not average I’m assuming.

Yes, that is maximum speeds…

I thought about this also but think a separate dvd-rom drive is nice to prevent wear and tear on the more expensive burner. :wink:
