My point of view, is that these drives have a hardware problem and NEC wants to release a new drive first, rather than a new firmware, so that it won’t be obvious that its latest (& supposed to be greatest) drive sucks. Probably it suits it well when people blame the firmware. My 4570 is lighter even from my tiny Lite-on DVD-ROM drive. Doesn’t look like its made out of qaulity matterials.
Yes, IMHO this drive will burn better than pio 111 with new 1.02 firmware. I hope that NEC release it this or next week.
It will undoubtedly improve with future firmware updates.
The ND-3520 was in most parts pretty bad when it arrived on the market.
I hope so.
I agree with Dee.
What’s all that fuzz about bad recording and this drive ? I mean, is there any problem with drive when you use good quality brand media with certified speeds ?
Can someone post documented, hard proof evidence that this drive doesn’t do well with recording comparable to older NEC drives ? I’ve read all that scans page and found none single evidence of any problems except individual minnor reports of bad recording performed on low cost media.
I want to say that I have 2510, 3520 and now 4571 and I must admit I can’t find any big improvments in this new drive but can’t find any bugs either!?
ENG: It will release from 2 to 23 of June, 100% guarantee by my 6th sense.
ITA: verrÃ sicuramente rilasciato tra 2 il e il 23 giugno, in estate infatti non hanno mai rilasciato nulla, e non possono slittare ad ottobre.
What? It will slip to October?
So, how do you justify the long delay?
Vi spiego meglio, purtroppo solo in italiano perchÃ¨ il discorso Ã¨ un pÃ² complesso per il mio pessimo inglese (posso provare dopo con power translator): la NEC in estate non ha mai rilasciato nessun aggiornamento firmware, i mesi utili ai 2 estremi sono giugno e ottobre. Per questo credo che verrÃ rilasciato questo mese, non posso slittare ad ottobre, sarebbe veramente scandaloso.
PS: english translation is coming soon…
EDIT: english translation is here!
NEC in the summer has never released any updating firmware, the useful months to the 2 extreme they are June and October. For this I believe that this month will be released, they cannot skid to October, it would be really scandalous.
By power translator.
where are these firmware updates ?
The 4570/71 produces very bad burns on MCC 004 as well as YUDEN000 T02. There are multiple scans in the NEC forum and this problem has been well reported. I have never seen any other drive that does so poorly with TY +R.
If you check the forums you will see why we are so disappointed.
I think there isn’t a bad burner—> I have always used LG but after 4 or 5 burns it becomes crazy!!!After I bought Pioneer until 110 D but it makes noise and it isnt I think a good player or decrypter but only a good burner…Now I 'm using nec 4550A and 4571A.Althought 4571 has not good fimware i think NEC is a good burner…Which are your opinion?
