:rolleyes: Wow.. I never said the drive wasn't worth $65 @ newegg. My question was simple: What generic or oem brands are actually the NEC 3500? And the replies have been helpful until we get one from a "senior member" ? Very disapointing.
The basis for my question is, where I live we have many electronics stores, and most carry different brand recorders.. HiVal, Pacific Digital, Mad Dog, Micro Advantage, Media Solutions, and a slew of others... Sometimes you see these drives for $29.99, $39.99, $49.99, etc...etc... I've even seen them as low as $9.99 after rebates and stuff (though not recently at that price). I was certain a list of current OEM's that rebadged the NEC was available. At no time did I question or doubt the value of this or any other drive. :Z The sharp response was over the top I think.
