25. Conclusion

When we received our ND-4550A burner from NEC, it had already been released onto the market a couple of months. We therefore decided to wait a little longer for the release of the new firmware for the burner, version 1.07. We are now ready to test the very popular NEC ND-4550A burner.

Below are the main specs for the drive, as given by NeroInfoTool and DVDInfoPro:

- Nero InfoTool

- DVD InfoPro

The RPC II region control is used, allowing the user to change the drive's region no more than five times.

- Retail Package

Previous burners that we have received from NEC came in the bulk package. This time round, we received a retail version that includes:

  • the white blazed NEC ND-4550A internal tray load mechanism burner
  • an E-IDE (ATAPI) cable
  • an Audio cable
  • mounting screws
  • a CD-ROM that includes documentation for the drive as well as a bundled version of Nero Express 6, Nero Vision Express 3, Nero Showtime 2, and a wide collection of Nero Utilities

These days, most of the retail packages that we receive do not include any blank media... and... NEC is not an exception here. :p

- The Drive

The front panel is no different to any other recent NEC drive such as the ND-4551A, with a typical NEC design. On the rear panel you will find the analogue and digital audio outputs (SPDIF), the IDE master/slave/cs selector pins, the IDE connector and the power input.

We do not recommend removing the drive's cover, since this will void the manufacturer's warranty. But you can take a look inside the drive with the pictures below. Click on the image for a larger, more detailed photograph.

The chipset is NEC's 'D6364', the same one that is used in the previous ND 3540 model as well as the latest ND-4551A burner. The specific chipset will also be found in Pioneer's latest burners, the DVR-110 and DVR-110D.

- Installation

The drive came installed with firmware version 1.06. We upgraded it to version 1.07. The drive was identified as the 'NEC DVD_RW ND-4550A' under WinXP. Below is a screenshot of Nero Burning Rom's specs for the drive.

In order to compare the performance of the ND-4550A, we provide the results of two other latest release burners, the BenQ DW-1655 and Plextor PX-755A.

NOTES ON INSTALLATION

First install the drive with the components side to the bottom.
Connect the system power and interface cables to the drive
connectors. Both connectors are keyed and can only be connected one
way. The interface connector may not be keyed. In this case check
if the red edge of the interface cable is connected to the pin 1 of
the drive connector.

Caution: SCSI drives don't need a low level format. If a new low
level format become neccessary, please run only qualified programs
for SCSI devices or the internal low level program of SCSI host
adapters (i.e. Adaptec AHA1540).
