This will be my first DVD burner. Doing research on this site has helped me alot. I’ve narrowed my choice to the BenQ 1620 and the NEC 3250. Can someone tell me why one would be better than the other? I know the NEC can be flashed with a modified firmware to remove riplock as well as add additional settings such as bitsetting.
The BenQ would be a no-brainer however but the reason I even ask is because I noticed the CD-R write speed on the NEC is 48x and the BenQ is 40x. Is the difference negligable? I’m replacing a very slow 12x Liteon CD-R drive so I’d like this new drive to have the fastest CD writing speeds as possible. Also the NEC seems to be a more established brand? I don’t remember BenQ cd-writers to be terrible good in terms of quality.
