Liteon LDW401S or NEC 1300A?

Hi folks!
I’d like a piece of advice…
I’m going to buy a DVD burner… I’d like a good recorder,
but I’d like to mantain the expense under 200€.
I live in Italy, and after reading a bunch of reviews,
I’m oriented to one of these two models:

LITEON LDW401S —>163€
NEC ND1300A —>190€

These are the best prices I’ve found here in Italy.

>>>WHICH MODEL DO YOU SUGGEST ME?<<<

I’m quite oriented to the LITEON, 'cause it’s cheaper,
and it writes faster the CD-R (40x vs the 16x of the NEC).
But it doesn’t write R-, at least with the shipped firmware.
I’ve heard about a new model, the 411S, but I don’t think
that it’s available, here in Italy, and I don’t know the price…

Thanx,
Thor

I think you should go for the LiteON. It can’t burn DVD- for now, but it will be possible to upgrade it to the 411S model via firmware. So you can have a 411S with the money of a 401S :wink:
And BTW, I don’t see why people continue to support DVD-… there are cheap DVD+ too in the market.

Don’t be too sure.

??? I heard it will be possible to reflash the 401S drive with 411S firmware…
