TDK 880N - it's NEC 2500A clone!

Hello,

I’ve just bought TDK 880N and has found it to be really NEC 2500A clone. I’ve downloaded TDK FW from this drive and it’s version 1.31. I don’t know how thiss number is related to original NEC FW but it looks so similar (when you look at it in hex mode) that I think TDK drive is really 100% compatible with NEC. But I’m afraid to install original NEC FW in my lovely new drive. So ust to inform all of you about this fact.

BTW TDK drive comes with FW without DVD Video rip speed limit. I’ve tested it and actual rip had speed x5.2

The rip speed limit for NEC ND-2500A drives is at 5x
