Alright People, I am New and have been reading old posts for days now. I found, like everyone else, the Cendyne External +/- burner at Costco.com. I read that this has the NEC ND-1300a drive in it.
For $302 shipped to my door that seems like a great deal. However, I have a 3-4 year old Sony Vaio with firewire on front and back and USB 1 and worried if anyhting is going to go wrong.
Also, I can get the NEC ND-1300a bare OEM drive on ebay for $200 and then install it in my a Firewire/2.0 case. This would total to about $250-$275 with shipping. Still seems like the Cendyne is the way to go, everything done.
Whats the software like with the Cendyne? I basically want to backup my DVD movie and take them to college with me and play in my Xbox.
