I purchased a NU DDW-082 and was really tortured by this drive for a couple of days.
execpt for quiet and neat case, I can hardly find any advatages of it!
I efforted to find out what dvd discs it can burn, I tested a bunch of dvd discs and failed a lot, at last, I knew the problem is that this drive will burn almost every +R disc but fail most of the -R disc, except some brand like ‘leaddata’.
I have updated the firmware to b375, and turned out to be big disappointed!
I have returned it back to the store. now I use the pioneer DVR-A07XLA without any problem.
Hence, except that you will only burn +R disc, I won’t recommend you to buy DDW-082! :a
