The delivery-pack: OEM.

Complete set:

  • Only the drive in antistatic package.

After installing, the drive was identified as "_Nec". What means the line is unclear.

The information on the complete set of Retail delivery we have found only on the scandinavian site.

The site of this company contains the information on support of CD-Text format, and Retail set includes Easy CDCreator 4.0 for recording of CDs. But in practice, EasyCD is appeared to be blocked.

Design is simple. But the practice show, that the simplier design is, the higher quality the drive has (compare with Teac and Plextor).

The front panel includes: one indicator (1-color mode) (3), headphones jack (1), volume control (2), emergency ejection hole (5), square open button (6). The tray goes out with a special "mechanized" noise.

On the rear panel there is a hollow, probably for a fan.

What is the reason of fan absence, we didn't success in finding out.

On the rear panel the drive has a digital output. The recorder can be installed both in vertical and horizontal position, for what there are halfround juts on the tray.
