I tried searching for answers to a couple of questions I had about these drives but am still unsure about what I've come up with. Can someone please clarify them for me?
The MD-16XDVD9-EXT is an NEC 3500 and the MD-16XDVD9A2-EXT is the NEC 3250?
And are they easily flashable to the modified firmwares found here? This I'm more unsure about than my first question.
I'm asking because my brother is looking for a DVD+/-RW drive and I thought I'd look some things up for him. I also have a question about the external IO Magic possibly being a BenQ 1620 but I'll post that in the right forum. I myself will be getting a Plex later on. He's looking to spend less.
BTW, both of these drives would be better than a Sony DRX-720/710 UL?
