According to what I have read online, an approximate release date is August 12th or 13th but we will see if that actually happens or not [-o<

If that happens, I would almost certainly have one of those drives sent up to me from one of my US friends... that's one of those "gotta have" drives! :D
Punch Cards -> Paper Tape -> Tape Drive -> 8" Floppy Diskette -> 5 1/4" Floppy Diskette -> 3 1/2" "Flippy" Diskette -> CD-R -> DVD±R -> BD-R

I would assume that almost every manufacturer will have some form of an NEC 16X DVD writer out by the end of the year.

I have contacted Newegg to ask them about the 3500 and here is their reply.

Thank you for contacting Newegg.

I do not believe that we will have the NEC 3500A by 08-17-2004.
We do not have ETAs for new items until after we receive the first shipment. Once we receive the initial order, we can more accurately estimate future deliveries. Generally it takes us about 6-8 weeks to receive new merchandise once it has been released to the public, due to the nature of supply and demand. Please continue to check all prices and availability at www.newegg.com for our most up-to-date status. Any item that is removed from our website usually will be out of stock for longer than 2 weeks.

All decisions regarding our inventory selection is determined by our marketing and purchasing departments. If you'd like to submit your suggestion to them directly, please visit Newegg.com and click on the YOUR IDEAS box on the left-side of our home page. After a few days of processing, you will be notified on the status of your suggestion.

Best Regards,
Mamado
