Hi,

Does anyone know the difference between GGW-H20L.AVAR06B & GGW-H20LAVBR03B, & also which drive does the external BE06LU10 has?

Thanks.

There’s a $80 difference between the 2 drives:

I really don’t know of any difference. The only thing I can think of is that one is a Bulk (OEM) and the other is a Retail Boxed drive thus it costs more.

Same drive in both links ( GGW-H20L ). The box version is more expensive ( blank BD-RE included ). Looking at pricegrabber and other engines shows a large range of price for this drive from U$ 200,00 to 340,00.

Ok, thanks. I’ll go to Best Buy & try to do a price match. Any recommendations for a sata enclosure for this drive?

The drive is quite long (185 mm) compare to other Blu-ray or DVD drives (~165mm), many have tried various sata enclosure in this thread SATA Enclosure for Blu-ray and HD-DVD drives.
