I'm thinking of buying a NEC ND1000A
DVD+R/+RW bare drive. Is there anybody
that can advise me or recommend the drive.
Good or bad.
Anything would be handy. Thanks.

Can't advise you on how good this one is but the cheapest is here click here at £116. Looking at the specs it seems pretty good. It certainly is the cheapest you can get.

Hi rickf That's the one. Thanks for the tip.
Looks cheap. The format is DVD+R, it makes me unsure with all these different formats.

I think you may find that this is the lesser of the 2 medias[ie like Betamax and VHS]
Dont take this as gospel have a search first

There is a review of this dvd writer amongst others in the latest micromart mag.

that review (toms hardware)is old.+r drives now record at 4x,the same as -r,so that advantage has gone.

for some upto date info try click here click here and click here.

having a dual-format writer,i have to say i prefer +r,read up and you'll see it has many advantages over -r.
