i was thinking about buying the nec 2510a. is this a good burner? newegg is selling it for $71.99.
is there any reason i should wait, like new tech on the horizon? i have been weary of buying a burner due to the media being so pricey but my HD is getting full and it will cost me just as much with cd’s.
I have also purchased an NEC 2510A but my Ridisc GO5 disc are only showing as being rated at 4x when I know that they burn at 8x in the Pioneer 107.
Can anyone give me an idiots guide on how to overcome this problem please.
There is no new official firmware upgrade for this drive yet and I wouldn’t be sure how to do it anyway.
Also, Herries homepage seems to be down at present, or is it just me. (I am using Mozilla Firefox as I Explorer is C**P)
I bought 2 2510a’s from newegg in the past 2 months, 1 for me, one for a friend, another friend bought one from them as well. With the stock 2.15 firmware, this has so far been a realy good value…
As far as the dual layer function and 8x possibilities, those were and are not terribly important to me. “Speed burning” to me means coasters…I’m happy to burn at 4x. As for the dual layer…when the disks are cheaper…nice to have the option.
Someone posted a “sale” on the NEC ND 2500a (I think I got the initials right) in the CD Freaks Bargain Basement forum. It’s an Office Max sale in some areas of the USA with an after rebate price of $50.00. I know they are offering them in my area at the moment. I think that’s a bargain as I paid $79.00 a couple of months ago for the same burner.
