(Just posted this on CDRinfo as well. Hope there is no bad blood between the 2 forums. If so I appologize in advance.)
Dell 8500 @ P4M 2.0Ghz & built-in Firewire + USB 2.0.
No preference of brands but leaning towards LiteOn because of firmware/hack/forum supports.
- Should I go for:
a) External burner (eg 812SX or 1213SX). What about USB 2.0 limits? I read some people are seeing 12Mbps limits. Also I don’t think LiteOn external supports Firewire.
b) Internal (eg 812S or 1213S) + Enclosure w/ Firewire + USB? If the enclosure is rated at 480Mbps (I read USB 2.0 can be either 12Mbps or 480Mbps) does it mean it won’t have a 12Mbps limit?
- Obviously will be flashing 812S/SX to 832 and 1213S/SX to 1633. With an external burner, am I gonna be limited by speed/stability of the enclosure & hence not worth spending the extra $10-20 for the 1213?
