Norcent DWD-840

Hi there,
I searched the forum, but it seems there was never a definitive answer on this question. Is the Norcent DWD-840 a rebadged drive? If so, which make and model is it? Best Buy has a pretty good deal on it ($119 -$30 rebate), but I’d like to know what I’d be getting. Thanks forthe info.

Hi.
Search in this forum ‘www.speedlabs.org’.
But if i´m not mistaken some are Liteon.

Purchased th Norcent through work. The software that ships with it (Sonic RecordNow) recognized the drive as the Lite-On LDW 811S.

The specs were changed on the packaging via a printed sticker. DVD-R write speed is 4X, not 8X as it was advertised when purchased.

But what do I care, I expensed it! Haven’t used it a whole lot, but so far so good.

“DVD-R write speed is 4X, not 8X as it was advertised when purchased.”
Yeah, that’s right.
In speedlabs forum you may find a thread about the -R 8x speed to be added via a firmware upgrade witch Norcent never did, check it out.
