After reading a lot of threads in the forum, looking for the "best" firmware upgrade for my NEC 2500A, I feel quite confused.
While "best" fits differently to different people, depending on their priorities in features, burning speed, quality, compatibility etc, it would greatly help if there was some kind of summary on these aspects, for each version of firmware (stock or not). What makes things worse is the fact that for some people "best" characterizes firmwares which successfully burn a specific brand of discs. Although respectable, it adds even more confusion.
As a new member in this forum (as new as in DVD burning), I do not have any experience/knowledge on previous versions of firmware and I have concluded that I cannot sort out yours (thank you for sharing it).
I think that most of your knowledge/experience could be roughly summarized in four tables. One listing which firmwares support features such as rpc-1, bit setting etc, and three more, listing in descending order best performers for burning speed, produced quality and support for special or problematic media.
Do you find it realistic?
