NEC 3550A OEM: Why No CRDLabs Review?


NEC 3550A OEM: Why No CRDLabs Review?

Postby TomBrooklyn on Wed Jun 14, 2006 5:55 pm

I see Ian has done a review several NEC Burners. However, the most widely available NEC burner seems to be the NEC 3550A. I wonder why CDRLabs hasn't reviewed that one.

I guess because NEC have other models with more features like DVD-RAM and Labelflash
Benq DW 1640, LG GH-20N, Pioneer BDR-208
Crucial M4, Sandisk SSD, Plextor M5S, Sandisk Ultra Plus, OCZ Petrol 256GB

For a while there NEC was releasing a new drive every couple of weeks.... it was getting a little nutty. I doubt the 3550 is being seriously considered at this point, considering how many newer units have been announced and released since that drive came out.

At the time, they had both the 3550 and 4550. NEC sent us the 4550A and I wasn't going to argue. At this point, we have no plans to go back and review the 3550.
