I know this issue keeps coming up, I think all the information, reviews, postings etc comes down to these 2 drives. For newbies like me we are looking for a simple answer and it looks like that is not the case.
here is what I was able to come up with:
- faster burning DVD’s
- better quality burns
- no bitsetting support
- only 32x burn on CDR’s
- able to burn 8x media at 12x
- more compatible with different types of media
- lot’s of hacks available to remove the riplocks, bit setting, etc
- less expensive than the pioneer by $10
for us newbies and for the most part the average user I can see bit setting support as the most crucial piece which makes the NEC a better buy.
did I summarize these two drives correctly? not sure if the average user is even going to notice a speed difference or even care about bit setting.
I am on the fence between these two drives and looking for some real feedback from those who have purchase either drive. what made you buy the drive you did and your experience with it?
once and for all what is the better drive to buy???
