Cheapest shop for 812S or 832S in Germany?

#1

Some of you might know that my crappy 811S has a sucking read error in KProbe scans which produces many high spikes in them. I´m now thinking of buying a 812S or even 832S (BTW, which of the two should I choose?), which ought to be much better readers and burners. But i need the cheapest place to get the drive in Germany. The cheapest price i found for the 812S is 76,49€, and for the 832S 75,30€. But i think it could be cheaper. eBay prices are about the same. Any help with my searching is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance :wink:

If you want the drive cheep, you can take a Speer LDR8844, which should be a OEM Liteon 812 drive. Speer is located in Viersen, Germany. You can often find Speer drives in local german supermarkets. You should verify that it really is a 812 using the contact address here: http://shop.speerdata.com/oscommerce/catalog_sp/firmware.php

Here are some other links:

To make it more interesting for the customer, Speer uses two names for the drive: LDR 8844 and DRW-2S81 :). The drive was tested here http://www.hardware-mag.de/hardware.php?id=249&page=1,
you can see the box here http://www.hardware-mag.de/hardware.php?id=249&page=5. The Speer drive does not have a line out at the front.

well, in Dresden there are some shops, like Winner Computer, Cyberport and M&M, but you could try www.preissuchmaschine.de or www.geizhals.at and look up some shops. I think MediaMarkt wants 89Euros for the 832s, a computer store isn’t much cheaper…

K&M Elektronik has an 812S as a kit for under 70 euros. But you’d have to find it in one of their shops (it’s out of stock in their mail order center).

Immernoch schweineteuer für ein Gerät, welches nur zum BLER scannen angeschafft werden soll…
