I just read on the front page that the MP5240A-DP 4x DVD+RW/+R drive might be another rebadged NEC?!
I tested the MP5120A which AOpen rebadg as a DVRW2412Pro (also tested) for PCPowerPlay magazine Australia. Which DVD Ricoh is a rebadged NEC?
Other writers I tested were:
Lacie DVD-R/RW rebadged Pioneer A03 (external FireWire)
Panasonic L-D321E RAM/R
Panasonic LF-D311SC RAM/R with DVD Movie Studio
Sony DRU-120A DVD+RW
External Sony DRU-120A (sweet firewire unit)
Fact: a “4.7GB” DVD recordable holds 4.7 billion bytes but only 4.3 GigaBytes
