... with free shipping!

just saw this... these are really easy to disassemble (open-can diode).

Still doesn't quite beat senkat's pre-installed diode price.
It might not beat the price, but an open can is capable of outputting 250mW with a plastic lens, 300mW with a glass lens and still have a decent life. :eek:

LOL...so you are saying the diodes are fairly easy to harvest out of this drive? I might just have to get a couple of these.

i ordered one of these babies a month ago for use in my computer (I took apart my previous DVD burner and killed the diode, and my computer was lacking a DVD burner)

overall good drive, I even reviewed it (heh) but I am not taking this baby apart anytime soon...

hmmm... that gives me an idea:

We are being kind of wasteful, aren't we? These things could be doing double-duty! How about modding that critter so you can click an icon on your computer, and a mirror drops down and reflects the beam out of the DVD burner... and the power and focus become adjustable with on-screen slider controls!
;D
Another click, and it switches back into DVD mode...

Now if I just had an extra week or two, or a clone... ::)

man jay, did you like find a lost aztec city made out of gold or something?? you just recently ordered a 300 dollar diode, and are still goin! I wish I had that kind of money LOL... ;D

anyhow, I like all the NEC drives as DVD burners, cheap (relatively) and they work, itsjust theyre all OEM, so... my drive also makes a lot of noise...

hope yall happy building, I for one hate extracting DVD burner diodes, being a DIY computer geek, i feel like im wasting the drive, and its painful, especially when I kill the diode in the end :'(
thats why I go with either OEM diodes, (senkat), or I buy already extracted diodes (TheMonk)

regards,

amk

Lol! In reality, 'I owe, I owe, so off to work I go'... My wife would kill me if she knew what I am really spending on lasers...

So far it has been my experience that all open cans are the same no matter what drive they come out of. Have you found anything different? For example, I compared a Pioneer 112D open can diode with a 115D diode and they were almost exactly the same electrically. They each were tested with 350ma's and the voltage across them was the same at 2.8 volts, and the output was the same. I did receive the Sony burners today but have not yet harvested the diode.

I do see the differences in the chip lengths in your photos. Where did you get those diodes?
