This is the best drive I have had!

  • Excerpt: This is the best drive I have had! I have burnt over 25 discs from my local computer store with no failures yet, all with excelent quality picture. I bought this for about £35 about two months ago from my local pc shop/store. The drive can write almost any disk media avalible at the present time. For such a fast writer it is very quite.
  • Pros: Compatibility with other disks
  • Cons: Needs a firmware update to get the full speed

Decent writer, decent price

  • Excerpt: All in all a decent writer but I'd recommend anyone buying this drive to search on google / nec for the latest firmware. The original firmware was very picky about the speed at which it would burn and typically did not go above 8x irrespective of the brand or type of disc used. Since flashing the new firmware I am now happily burning normal DVD-R / DVD+R at around 16x without much trouble on most brands.
  • Pros: Excellent value for money
  • Cons: Quirky with DL disks

A very capable drive for little cash

  • Excerpt: After my Asus CD-RW bit the dust (the obligatory 1 month out of warranty), I decided the time was right to shift up a technology level and invest in a DVD writer. Prices have gone through the floor in the past couple of years and you can now pick up a DVD burner for less than twice the price of a far less flexible CD-RW; it's worth remembering that DVD-RW drives will also read and write CDs.
  • Pros: Good quality, reliable, flexible, inexpensive
  • Cons: Not the prettiest drive available

NEC ND 3520 DVD / CD writer

rik_uk3, Ciao
18 March 2005
  • Excerpt: I picked up one of these from www.aria.co.uk last week for £40 to replace the NEC 1300a drive I had had for just over a year. Installation is very easy, just a matter of connecting up a power cord and ribbon cable, only took a few minutes. The drive will copy both -R and +R DVD's (and re-writeable) plus the usual CD's. Copy speed for a full DVD is about 9 minutes and a CD around 2.
  • Pros: Very fast writer
  • Cons: none

  • Excerpt: Ik heb deze brander inmiddels al 1,5 jaar in mijn bezit en heb nog steeds geen één cd of dvd vanwege brandfouten hoeven weg te gooien (en dat zijn er inmiddels toch ruim over de 100). Hij was toendertijd de goedkoopste in zijn klasse, maar ondanks dat waren er toch veel positieve verhalen over, die ik alleen maar kan beamen.
  • Pros: Goede brandkwaliteit, veel soorten firmware
  • Cons: Inmiddels misschien wat verouderd

Leiste gute und zuverlässige Arbeit

  • Summary: Der Hersteller NEC mit dem internen Laufwerk mit dem Typnamen NEC ND-3520 Bulk in schwarzer Optik ein echt schniekes Bauelement für den Rechner geschaffen wie ich finde. Denn ich habe meinen neuen Computer generell in den Farbe schwarz gehalten, obwohl dieses natürlich vom Verschmutzungsgrad etwas ungünstig ist und man mitunter öfter zum Staubtuch greifen muss, so ist doch einfach nur der Stylefaktor in größeren Höhen als bei weißen oder grauen Bauteilen für den PC...
