No I don’t think so…but maybe vaguely if I trawled the depths of my warped and twisted mind…! :d

Gristy, NuTech makes their own drives, no clones. They’re considered up-and-coming, with some of the fastest write times for +R media out there. Their -R support is average, but they’re showing a good commitment in releasing firmware updates on a regular basis. The drives are also competetively priced, at around $100-120. Their earlier drive, the DDW-081 is supposedly upgradeable to the -082 with firmware. With a little hacking, the even earlier DDW-061 can also be upgraded to similar status.

NuTech is the retail brand for Quanta Storage, launched mid 2003

I have the ddw-081/082!! Nu has released firmware upgrades which make the 081 into the 082. It burns +/- R/RW well. I would buy it again!!!

We also have an unit available. Review should be done soon.
