I was leaning toward the TDK anyway, and since you two recommend it.....
I received my drive from newegg this morning at work. I popped the drive in a PC and flashed the 2.C7 firmware(windows) branded for NEC from Dangerous Brothers. It appears to be working fine, but I need to locate some +R media. Right now all I have here is +RW. I have some 4x +RW at home, and will test once I get in the door.
I was using USB external for my DW-U10a, but I want to put this drive on the sec IDE channel. I have to remove my Yamaha CRW-F1
The best CD burner I have ever used. I can count on my hands the coasters I have had, and thats after burning 100's of discs. It will now be downgraded to an external USB case. It will be missed
