Does anybody know if any DW1625’s are available yet in the UK? Has anybody seen any LightScribe media also in the UK?

The HP 640i is a Lite-On based Lightscribe drive, havent seen the 1625 listed anywhere yet in the UK


#4

Wow! The media isn’t cheap! Also, the HP drives only appear to come in black, and some models do seem to be Lite-Ons.

JES Computer (German based but they deliver to UK region) have Philips Lighscribe 8x DVD+R/DVD-R listed a 5 pack for €6.90 which seems pretty good though its not in stock & that price will probably change…

Yeah the HP seems to be only in black I’m going to wait for the Philips/BenQ branded drives instead.

LG, Lite-On, and Benq make the Lightscribe drives for HP. Mine is a 640c and is made by Benq.


#8

So if you buy a HP 640 you dont know if you get a BenQ or Liteon or LG??? Wtf?


#9

Not exactly the HP 640i is Lite-On, the HP 640c is BenQ and the LG one is called 640b I think.

Of course if the online store doesnt suppply that info then it might be difficult to find the right one you want…


#10

They’re all sold as 640i (i = internal). So far I’ve not seen anyone confirm he/she has got a Lite-On, only BenQ (640c) and LG (640b). Following HP’s previous naming scheme the drive ID of the Lite-On version (if it exists) should be 640r (and I haven’t found any burning software that list support for this drive yet).


#11

Okay I thought the HP 640i was a confirmed Litey well that definitely makes things more tricky at getting a HP [BenQ] Lightscribe drive.

Came across this also, LaCie will be selling an external Lightscribe drive which from the picture just looks like a HP 640 in an external case

photos of BenQ lightscribe will be up soon
