NEC 2510 Dual Layer DVDRW Writer UK release date?

Wus browsing SVP`s site earlier and noticed there Advertising the New NEC 2510 DL For £69.99 (Stock expected in June)

Damn Cheap for a Dual layer Drive.

But they dont seem to be takin PRE-ORDERS


Interesting, we all know prices will continue to drop. :stuck_out_tongue:

When is the NEC 2510 Dual Layer Writer supposed to be out in the UK?

Also I know the NEC 2510 will be priced around £70-£75 but does anyone know what the Lite-On SOHW-832S will be priced at?

My thoughts exactly, Prices are likely to increase when stocks become avaliable.

SCAN are also advertising the NEC ND-2510 for £69.33

And , Also the LG 4120BB for £84.01

Aswell as the SONY at nearly twice the price


Announced 169 to 199 euros in France .

Edit : Liteon 832S

The NEC 2510 will be £70 and available from June. The Liteon 832 was in stock at CCL for £124

the big question though is when will dual layer media be available?

Threads merged due to identical topics.

My practical guess is, September at the earliest, but anyone can ask companies to supply them at something like US$50 per disk right now. :slight_smile:

Damn! In Germany they were announced by Verbatim for July! Hope that the price will be less than 10$ per disc. I’ll buy at least one medium in order to test if my ND-2500 is dual layer capable.

For UK buyers try as they say 1 to 3 days (£66.51) and they already have the Sony(£143.47) and LiteOn(£87.54) dual layer burners in.

I have seen this product selling for £64 at a local computer fair in the UK £63 but the first lot of stock went like wildfire, they expect more in today.

Ebuyer are currently quoting stock of 95 units at £53.95 + vat and delivery

Just my input!

My local PC world are selling the sony for £150! (Ouch!), with a sign that say’s “media to be released soon” - it’s a bit like selling a car when petrol isn’t available really!

I have a contact in the media trade and even he can’t get dual layer media yet, but as soon as I get hold of some I’ll be trying out my 2500a on it and posting the results! :smiley:

Ordered mine from - should arrive tomorrow!

Just fitted 2510A made in Malaysia,May 2004,burns TYG01 4x @ 8x same as 2500A.No dl in UK yet so cant test yet. No better than the 2500A with present media both are good burners Had to install nero 6 as didnt want to play although it recognised the drive.

Anyone know why SVP have removed the drive from the hardware section on the site?

I just checked and it’s on SVP’s hardware section now for £64.99
