I am trying to decide between the NEC 3540A and the BenQ 1640 for use both internally and in a AMS VENUS DS-2512C 5.25" USB + IEEE 1394 external enclosure. This enclosure uses Oxford 911 and Cypress USB 2.0 chipsets. Typically I use TYG02 8x media for my burns. After reading the reviews of both of these burners I was leaning towards the BenQ 1640 for its burn quality with the TYG02 media and its burn checking abilities. However:
I am very concerned about the compatibility of the BenQ 1640 with the external enclosure. Does anyone have any experience with this combination?
Should I wait for the new NEC models?
