The most interesting among the accessories is a
user's manual which highlights a lot of questions a beginner can
face. There are such specific issues as a principle of functioning
of the JustLink.
An advanced user will obviously guess who is a
manufacturer of the chipset and pickup. I wouldn't state that this
drive is just an OEM version of the MP-7125A-DP from Ricoh, but
it is definitely very close to the Ricoh ones.
Here is what the Nero says you about the drive:
Some time ago ASUSTeK released a recorder of 12/10/32
with the SuperLink technology. Nevertheless, the front panel of
our hero says that it is equipped with the JustLink. The Nero, however,
says that it is exactly the SuperLink.
While working the drive whistles a bit. Discs ejected
after intensive reading are rather warm.
The appearance is very similar to the Ricoh.
A tray door, a headphones jack, a mechanical volume
control, an emergency ejection hole and one LED. The drive can be
installed both in vertical and horizontal positions.
