There is a 3500A on eBay, and the Seller insists that these are the specifications listed on the box:
CD / DVD read speed-- 40x (CD) / 12x (DVD+R) / 12x (DVD-R)
CD / DVD write speed-- 40x (CD) / 8x (DVD+ R) / 8x (DVD-R)
CD / DVD rewrite speed-- 24x (CD) / 4x (DVD+R) / 4x (DVD-R)
It was manufactured in China in October 2004. He also said that it is a single layer burner!
I am totally confused–I thought the 3500A was the first 16x dual layer made by NEC. Am I wrong? Is it possible that there were some 3500A’s that were single layer, 12x burners? Defies logic!
