I don’t know if this has been posted yet. But Staples has the BenQ DW1655 drives branded as IOMagic on sale this week for $50.00 after rebates.
But according to spects posted in Staples WEB site the drive is AOpen not BenQ 1655.
I picked one up today it is without a doubt the BenQ 1655
Then why the have posted this drive which is AOpen spects not BenQ?.
Dunno dude. I have right here though it is a DW1655 the drive itself is labeled BenQ
I picked one up today it’s a BEN-Q DW 1655 label is on the drive.
I have no faith in Staples site as to specifications. All these office supply stores get a wide variety in the stores. That is a good reason to only buy these things when in hand to minimize disapointment. I have seen one brand of media with three countries of origin on the same shelf.
just got back from Staples, DW1655 here
How I do I know you are right “Dude”.
I was just kiding, don’t take seriously.I know you have it.
lol pictures are worth 1000 words…
definitely not enough proof for me. How about I pm you my address and you can mail me the drive for “verification”
office supply stores are well known for misleading customers with plain wrong specs more often than other electronic stores
How many did you take? Local Staples here sold out!
I got one and they only had two on the shelf. Lightscribe’s gonna take my porn collection to a new level.
I am still undecided whether to get this drive with lightScribe or wait for NEC 4551A with “Labelflash” to become available.
I only have one IDE Controller with already two drive attached to it (BenQ 164 & NEC3500) with AOpen 1616 taking retirement time.
