    NEC nd3500a DVD+-RW

    Has anyone used this dvd burner yet? I have read nothing but good reviews and comments on this drive. Just wanted to get some input before I get one for myself.

    Would you guys recommend getting the NEC nd3500a external USB2 model? I know they have it on eBay for like $105. I think it's the OEM nd3500a internal drive stuck in a external shell...is that what it is?

    Well give me some input so I can have the reassurance of going with my decision.

    I highly recommend the ND3500A, get it from newegg for $75; just buy the internal one

    I have used it successfully at 16x write speeds on +/- R media as well as 4x speed on R9 dual layer media.

    Media choice is just as important as drive choice as well, and I recommend either Taiyo-Yuden DVD Media, Ridata Ritek DVD Media; both avaiable from

    I have good experiences with the NEC 2500A, the 3500A is probably the same quality you can expect from NEC

    Based on my research of this drive...i decided to go ahead and purchase an internal drive through www.newegg.com. I've heard nothing but good reviews. thanks for the help guys.
