I know the NEC has better writing quality across many different kinds of DVD media, along with 8x DVD-R ability, but it’s missing one thing, the booktype\bitsetting option.
How important is it? Do only a small percentage of players require it to be set to DVD-ROM? What about gaming systems? Will future firmwares enable that type of setting with the drive, or is that impossible? [/B]
I think DW800A is not so popular outside asia(taiwan?). I prefer ND-2500A, but DW800A is not a bad choice. I guess you can find many k-probe scans in cdfreaks, so i would only post DW800A scans
DW800A, firmware B3B7, Ritek 4X +R
DW800A, firmware B3B7, Ritek 4X -R
I don’t recommend Liteon LDW-811S, especially -R. If you really want to buy a drive for k-probe … at the same price level, you are able to buy a better drive. You may bet a new firmware to improve writing quality. Anyway, k-probe scans
LDW-811S(4X burning), firmware HS0K, Ritek 4X +R
