Ok this is my first post so be nice.
I’ve done a lot of research regarding buying a new DVD Burner as I only have a CD Burner currently. I was looking at getting the 812s before stumbling upon the 832s which as of now I cant find ANYWHERE. I’ve been hoping that newegg.com will pick it up but as of now no…
I was thinking if I’m shelling out the money now for a drive, it might be worth while getting a drive that has Dual Layer capabilities, even if its only 2.4x. Ill just wait until later to buy some Dual Layer media.
Just wondering if anyone has found it and for how much?
I was looking before to buy the 812s for 79.99 including shipping. If I can get the 832s somewhere for under $100 i’m sold to buy it. I also saw the NEC ND-2510A Dual Layer drive thats selling for only 90.00 including shipping. Brand name wise I currently have a Lite ON CD Burner that I’m very happy with so I was hoping to stay LiteON unless something pulls me different. Game Backups and being able to burn many different things is big for me.
Anyone know where I can find the 832s? Or should I just wait another month for it to show up everywhere. I see it at some websites based overseas, but I was more looking for one in America myself, lol
I’ve read the posts about firmware updates that can potentially turn the 812s into the 832s. Is it something that’s hard to do? So I assume the drive will then be able to burn Dual Layer no problem just like any 832s? If this is true, my decision might be mad, even after reading through a bunch of posts if someone could just explain how that works a little bit that’d be great.
Any help or reccomendation would be great!
