For all you die hard Nec 3500 fans

New Nec 3500a $86.13


#2

Good find but can you trust CDW to be right with the model number?


#3

Probably. They used to be pretty good with inventory, able to even tell you stock by store/warehouse location, but then I haven’t bought anything from them for at least 4 years. They do have 3520 listed separately, at a (slightly) lower price.

You can also bargain with them if you call to order. It used to be easy to get at least free 2-day FedEx shipping.


#4

WoW, they still have those in stock?? Hurry up folks because I am buying 2 before they are out of stock


#5

Other than having the rip lock for slow dvd ripping, are these any different from the current 3520?


#6

I’m out of slots! :frowning:


#7

Check out the NEC forum.
The CDfreaks at this forum consider this a “classic” drive that they compare all other drives to.


#8

Most people believe that this model is the best NEC drive


#9

May I ask how it differs from the 3520a (I thought the only difference was the lack of rip-lock and decreased quality control during manufacturing)?

Are there actual differences in burn quality or rip quality / speed?

Is that in Hong Kong Dollars or Singapore Dollars?


#12

replace the $ sign with a Jpn Yen, then i would consider to buy it or not.

This is a condition called nostalgia. One of the symptoms is insisting that nothing, NOTHING! will ever be as good as ND3500APX708ADVRA08SOHW832SDW1620! :slight_smile:
