    Default NEC 3550-one good year

    after hundreds of great burns(it's done the lion's share for me) I made a coaster with it and TYG02 media tonight.

    I burned another disk which was successful but cdspeed thought it was a dvd-rw booktyped dvd-r, disk scanned ok(92/1200PIF total) in my benq.

    Probably blow it out one last time and try to get another 100 burns out of it.

    with repairing my library I probably burned or ripped a 100 disks with it the first month or two, since then it's been used 50% burning, 45% ripping and 5% scanning if that.

    Probably seen almost a thousand disks, did burn or rip a lot of karaoke and music cd's also.

    keeping it an all purpose workshop didn't help

    My 3550's should last several years then if they can take that kind of abuse.

    My computer shop is in a basement 2 bay garage(1 9ft door), it gives me the option to set up to 3 computers at the same time for big projects, the garage side is used for remodeling projects(sanding old doors down) cutting baseboard and casing for bathroom remodeling etc. I have always got 1 or 2 computers I am working on for clients. Usually use a 6 ft table and 5 ft desk in an L, but add another 6 foot table for a U shaped work area when need arises. My daughter and her boyfriend just finished a WOW marathon.
    Damn cat 5 cables strung everywhere. Thankgoodness my son and his friends outgrew the UT lan party phase.
