CompUSA has the Norwood Micro Internal 16x DVD burner for $30 after rebate. I was in the only CompUSA store in Indianapolis last Sunday and they were all rebadged BenQ DW-1650 drives. Flashing them to an actual BenQ drive is a snap with the BQ Flasher utility found on these forums. I’ve done this on two of them.
Also Fry’s has the NEC 3550A 16x OEM bare drive for $28 with free shipping. I know that this is not a very popular drive for CDFreaks gurus, especially in beige. I have one but haven’t played around with it enough to comment on it.
