What is the upgrade to NEC DVD+-RW ND-6500A?

[qanda]This thread is about the NEC 8X DVD SlimWriter 8.5GB ND-6500. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hi there,

I currently have a Dell 9300 with a NEC DVD±RW ND-6500A.

Does anyone know the next model I can upgrade to with 16X speed.

I dont know which one to purchase and which one will fit my laptop.

Thanks again =)


No laptop drive will bring you 16x speed. Even current drives (like the Optiarc AD-7590A or those of other manufacturers) limit write speed to 8x due to hardware limitations of the slimline form factor.
