Looks nice, Ive been eyeing on 6500/6550 for my T40. :slight_smile:

@ala, why MCC02RG20 is in the DVD-R9 section?


#4

Well, it is stored in the -R9 table of the 3520/30/40/6650 firmwares. It is also stored in the -R table.


#5

is it true 8x or that 5.56x?


#6

13,800.00 JPY Japan Yen = 166.820 AUD Australia Dollars
1 JPY = 0.0120884 AUD 1 AUD = 82.7238 JPY

Probably +300 bucks here when it gets here in 2 years time


#7

I wonder when will it be widely available… or can i order it from Japan?


#8

Kenshin, not a bad price. 13,900 Yen = USD128.

How much is the ND-6500 now? Six months ago you mentioned 17,800 Yen (USD175).
http://club.cdfreaks.com/showpost.php?p=755752&postcount=86
Newegg sells 6500 for USD102 plus shipping.


#9

I haven’t looked at. (Bless.co.jp link was dead when I tried.)

ND-6500A is probably no longer in production. NEC usually ships to Dell first (for much cheaper of course) and then some of those OEM units somehow enter the Japanese retail stores.

Oh, I found one just now:

ND-6650A at Bless.co.jp for 13,239 Yen + 5% Japanese domestic VAT tax

They are all primarily offline shops concentrated in one of the busiest and the prices shown there just reflect randomly found ones, not best deals.

Official specification:

http://www.sw.nec.co.jp/products/optical/en/ND-6550A/index.html

Dimensions (HxWxD) 13.8 mm x 128 mm x 129 mm
(with standard bezel loaded)
Weight Approx. 185 g

Hm. 3.5-inch form factor’s not used for notebooks DVD drives yet. 185 gram is too much when 2.5-inch HDDs weigh far less and far more important.

What’s ND-6550A? 6650A OEM without + support?

Wherever I found links to ND-6550A all lead to ND-6650A pages.

On the current Akiba PC Hotline! page, there’s also a line mentioning ND-6550A but the linked “Forecast” page doesn’t have anything about NEC ND-6*** series product. Typo?

Looks like its available in the US now. Shentech seems to be selling them for USD$139. http://www.shentech.com/necnd8xdvsli.html


#13

Unfortunately it does not seem to be available here, though. And even if it was, I can’t define the DVD-RW myself in a laptop I’m about to purchase and this is disappoitning. If I had the choice, I would get the NEC
