upgrading the dw800a to a dw822a is not supported by Benq
what he is refering to is using stock firmware as opposed to hacked firmware from herrie. you can use stock nec on 2510 but nec stock does not support bitsetting on +R/rw media.

tests have already been done and both do well with various media. the benq has advantage as it can bitset and is a better reader than the nec.
at lease IMHO I see bitseting as a plus. but if you do not need the nec as a reader and/or do not mind using hacked firmware or hp firmware for bitsetting then nec is for you.
