Take a look at the Recording Hardware Forum (this is the General Hardware Forum) and the stickies in the RHF. You should be able to get quite a number of opinions there.

@Ice Cold

How can you be so sure in your recommendation of the ND-3520A when so few people have tried it and when a few of the preliminary results say that it might not be as good as the 3500A… considering that it has a completely different chipset and all.

Have your tested this drive? Do you know anyone that has it? Do have any clue on it’s availability? What do you base this recommendation on? Do you just dream up this stuff (as seen in your previous post) just to have something to post?
:wink: :wink: Think 'bout it!
