What NEC drive should I choose?




I’m about to buy a NEC drive. Which one is the best right now. It doesn’t matter if it’s sata/pata.



None of them??

In all honesty if you’re dead set on an NEC, they’re all very similar but the Optiarc 7170 has the most features.

I’ve used everything NEC from the 2510A and up, and I just couldn’t take the poor quality burns anymore compared to any other modern burner. It is a damn good burner for DL, but that’s where the buck stops IMO.


Oh, really? Do the new models perform so badly? What a shame!


Good quality dvd’s = good quality burns, and so far i’m not having any problems with my 7173 :).
