It seems like you have to make too many compromises to get a DVD burner these days. You either have to sacrifice features or quality to get what you want.
I’ve been waiting for the 811 to have its firmware fixed for quality. Seems like the burn quality for the 811 and other Lite On drives is substandard at best. (back in the CD-R days Lite On was the king of value burners.)
Then you have drives like the NEC 2500 which seemed promising at first, but then have all sorts of obscure errors and problems, and then lacks features such as book setting, and slow DVD Video extraction. (although I’m sure www.herrie.org will issue a firmware to fix this).
In any case, any thoughts on the 811? Am I overly concerned with lackluster k-probe scans?
