Is it a common practice for vendors to sell/ship LDW-811S drives as LDW-851S? I ask because I purchased what I thought would be an 851S from an online vendor. When I got the drive the label, and Nero Info Tool said it was an 811S. I feel like I’ve been somewhat swindled by the whole thing, and now it this vendor is avoiding my questions.
Anyhow, I’ve ended up ordering an 812S from another vendor, which happens to be cheaper. I also hear that the 812S is a bit better, and it appears to be newer. I guess I’m somewhat glad this whole fiasco happened because in the end I’ll end up with what I hope is a better drive.
So, is it common for the 811S to be shipped as an 851S?
