A Walmart employee made a huge mistake in my favor!
I have a cousin who has requested a DVD burner as a present, so having an LDW-451S myself, I figured I'd go to Walmart and pick one up for him (he wanted a burner with a black bezel) for $99. Well, they were fresh out of the LDW-451S, but the guy, who obviously didn't know any better or was afraid to lose a potential customer, went and gave me the shiny new 8x burner that was there only as of a few days before, because he got really talkative and I told him it was for my cousin's birthday present. I asked him when they were going to restock on the other one, and he said sometime next week. My cousin's birthday is this Sunday.
So basically, I can take the new SOHW-812S for myself (which is currently sitting unopened a few feet away from me), and give my cousin my current LDW-451S, or I can keep the LDW-451S and not open up my case, and just give my cousin the brand new SOHW-812S.
By the way, just for the record, this isn't a surprise birthday present, because my cousin knew I'd be getting him the LDW-411S/451S, so he would not complain if he received the LDW-451S and knew that I took the SOHW-812S for myself. Besides, he's done stuff like this to me before anyway. :eek:
I'd like to get some more opinions on the matter though. :bigsmile:
