Would you like a 8X DVD-Writer roundup?

Topic says it.

This is something due for March/April if I choose to do it. (depends on the feedback here).

Some points:

*It will include several drives = those I have available at that time.
*It will contain less tests/details than my in depth reviews.
*Tests will be re-done at that time with the firmwares that is available at that time.

Drives that will be included:

Plextor PX-708A
Lite-On 8X (unsure which model number probably LDW-811S or LDW-851S)
NEC ND-2500A

Drives that may be included (depends on the companies - will they send me review samples? and will I be able to keep the test samples?):

NU Tech 8X
BTC 8X
…and of course any other that I may have available at testing time.

Yes, definitively. :cool:

I sure’d like to see a review of the 811s (or the 851 ofcourse), the 2500A and the A07 (not available yet, I know), so why not a roundup? The more detail the better ofcourse :)…

I think it’s better to test each drive in-depth as you get them sent to you rather than testing all drives at the same time and get less detailed reviews.

I see your point. But if the tests will be focused on the most important features… :bigsmile: then I will appreciate the comparison. I go for the round up!

Thanx, OC!!

Hopefully the Pioneer 8x drive will be out to test as well, hehe

The roundup is in addition to the in-depth reviews.
