which dvd burner...plex708a or nec2510?

im thinkin gettin a dvd burner and i was wonderin wut you guys thought bout these two burners. I heard the plex708a is quiet and u can control the dvd read speed usin nero. I was wondering if the nec2510 is also quiet. I can get the plex708a for 86 bucks and the nec2510 for 88. Do you think its better to go for the dual layer nec2510 or the plex708a? I heard DL media aint really great right now either but wuts so bad for gettin a dl burner for 2 bucks more? Im mostly aimin for a quiet dvd drive. Thanks.

    it is unbearably quiet, i have to try VERY hard to hear the thing spinning.

    ..this is very useful and helpful place for information...
  2. Get LiteOn SOHW-812S

  3. I have the 2500A, the 2510A is the same drive with the head calibration held to tighter tolerances (and a dual-layer enabled BIOS). My drive is super quiet, and physically they're the same, which means the 2510A should be just as quiet.

  4. Between the two I'd get the NEC in a second.

    But I'd get a LiteOn 812 (832S) over the NEC as well.
