BTW, the 5272 is a sweet drive. It has been able to read discs that my friends 2500A has written that it can no longer read. [/B]
Reading is the only thing the Tosh is good at. Their media support is :Z The worst ever seen for a DVD Burner
The NEC 2500A is fine, the reading part maybe a bit too sensitive, but good media support + great write quality (unlike Tosh).
