DVD+R DLへの4倍速書き込みとDVD±Rへの16倍速書き込みに対応したNEC製最新DVDドライブ「ND-3500A」の予約が「ZOA 秋葉原本店」で開始された。予価は12,980円で、近日入荷予定となっている。

I’ll translate it later if I don’t forget about it and if it’s worth the efforts. (Probably not.)

The price is a little lower than Pioneer DVR-108.

Pioneer DVR-A08: US$120
NEC ND-3500A: US$110
LG GSA-4120B: US$70

TSST Samsung’s TS-H552A is not yet in Akihabara probably though they’ve been in South Korea for a while. There are going to be a lot of TS-H552 reviews from South Korean users soon. :slight_smile:

I’d like to have a look at the firmware :bigsmile:


#3

I should have an ND-3500A on Friday, i’ll PM you RE firmware when it arrives :wink:


#4

That would be great, thanks. :smiley:
I hope to enhance my firmware dumper/patcher to accept these firmwares too. Let’s see if the TDB flasher for the 2500 still works with this drive. Otherwise it could get a little difficult to extract the firmware.

I was thinking that as well, we’ll soon find out :iagree:


#6

We’re only an email away. We’d invite those who have this drive, or OEM equivalents to contact us directly.
