Wow, nice deal.

Well, they aren’t the cheapest… for a coolgrey one… in the U.S.

That is in Canadian dollar. There is a link where you can get 1640 for $45 USD, but shipping to U.S kills the deal ($16 for me for ground).


#5

just ordered one from page computer but they charged me sales tax even though I am not in their state by half a country. Still cheaper than ncix though. It was $57.67 total with shipping and tax.

page computer has a mediocre reseller rating (horrible customer service). I would wait for newegg.


#7

newegg is taking forever… still don’t have it


#8

newegg has them on their website now $45.99 + shipping. But it is out of stock until 8/2

whoohooo, thats only one day away

8/1/05: Newegg Benq Listing

$44.99 - Benq 1620 Pro RETAIL Black (bonus media included)
$65.99 - Benq 1625 OEM Black ( Lightscribe Model )
$45.99 - Benq 1640 OEM Black
$45.99 - Benq 1640 OEM Beige

  • All $4.00 FedEx Saver Shipping

The 1640 is a no brainer unless you REALLY need 2 packs of Benq media (in the Benq 1620 Pro Retail bonus package ) … not sure what the cd-r is, but the DVD +R is DAXON AZ2. Not exactly enticing.

Great price on the 1640’s right out of the gates. Newegg is simply $$. :bow:


#11

In stock as of NOW.


#12

Go Go Go
About time, so tired of waiting.


#13

Now you won’t have to go to Manhattan, by the way they did have them on Friday but they didn’t update their webpage until today. When I said 49.99, I was right on 45.99 + 4.00 shipping. Its on the way.


#14

I wonder what firmware will come with it?


#15

I bet half you guys are going to RMA these new Benq drives, cuz I don’t trust their quality control anymore. Thank God my Benq 1620 works perfectly so far, that’s because I bought it during the time when Benq drives were of hight quality!!!


#16

Damn, newegg is fast. Ordered at 3pm, shipped at 7pm.


#17

BenQ 1640 hardware is different than BenQ 1620. But you know what, Plextor PX-716A had their bad batch in early production (TLA#0000). BenQ 1620 in their last batch especially the OEMs although from what I’ve read it’s still less than 3% from total units. Let’s see…


#18

Which period was that? Are you referring to any specific dates or places of manufacture? Just curious. Thanks.

Re. your comment of Benq quality control, hopefully they’ve figured it out. If they’ve gone to the trouble of revamping the cooling system, you would think it was done for a reason otherwise they wouldn’t go through the trouble.

Well … neehoo … the proof is in the pudding, but I’m diggin’ this drive especially for TY media (based on posted scans).


#19

Just ordered mine from Newegg, $49.99 shipped.


#20

I buy 90% of my PC hardware from Newegg. It’s the best company in the world! :slight_smile: Re: how fast? I once ordered some stuff Sunday morning, and it was at my work late Monday morning! Sunday FedEx shipping? Go Newegg! :slight_smile: (they must have a special deal with FedEx?)
