Notebook DVD+-RW NEC ND-6650A $109.99



This looked interesting. It is Black.

“NEC introduces its 2nd generation ultra compact double layer DVD recording drive, capable to write at 8x speed DVD-R and DVD+R media as well as 8x write or rewrite at DVD +RW, 6x write at DVD-RW 4x write on DVD +R9 same as DVD-R DL media that allow store up to 8.5 GBytes. Besides DVD recording, the drive writes CD-R media with 24x speed as well as Ultra-Speed CD-RW discs at 16x. The read speed of 8x for DVD-ROM 24x for CD-ROM in combination with the access time of 160 ms for DVD and 130ms for CD comprise the most important 9 optical storage functions in 1 slimline drive.”


Can any notebook dvd+rw drives write at speeds higher than 8x? I dont ever remember seeing any. But then again it could be because I dont have a notebook and I have never really looked.




Do these drives fit in any laptop with a bay or do you need a "caddy/tray? I have a gateway 450 ROG and would like to replace the floppy drive with this drive.
