Iomega DVD+RW... Worth it?

Got this in my email and was wondering what you guys thought. Any ideas who actually makes the drive? Iomega certainly doesn’t.

Worth it or should I just save some cash and get a different drive?

Try THIS thread as well.

There it’s reported to be a NEC ND-1100A clone.

Ian has a link to another NEC ND-1100A clone review that he did.

Thanks, did a search before I posted for ‘Iomega DVD+RW’ and nothing relevant came up. Something about some guy with a CD-RW and a Zip drive came up, but not much else.

I’ll read through the reviews.

And now that I’ve actually clicked the link above, I find that my last comment was irrelevant.

As you’ll see from the CDR labs link, I’ve bought one from www.tigerdirect.ca

Same deal as the US Parent company, just different country.

It’s a great price for a 4x DVD+R, 2.4x DVD+RW drive.

Yeah I was noticing the excellent price :slight_smile:

The only thing I worry about is compatibility with DVD players. I have a Sony 530D that shows compatibility with DVD-R(W) and DVD+R (not W) at vcdhelp.com.

Oh well… I’ll keep searching… that price’ll hold for a few days I imagine.

I’ve got an Hitachi DV-P415 that is a big question mark about DVD+R(W) too.

But it’s worth it for me.

Most 4x DVD writers are $399 CDN or more.

I guess it’s a trip down to Fry’s for me to see what’s on sale there too :slight_smile:
