Retail model. Too bad shipping is 6 bucks.

Yo-

Looks like they only have [B]5[/B] in stock - buy [B]NOW!!! [/B] if y’all want one-eh! :iagree: :iagree:


#3

Finally I got a spare, even at 45.00 delivered for the retail is not bad. :clap: Thanks BigMike7, I owe you one my friend.:iagree:


#4

Out Of stock. Well, I guess I will get the Liteon for 40.00 instead.


#5

The “PAYPAL10” free shipping code expired already?


#6

I was in such a rush before they sold out I forgot to use it. LOL.:iagree:


#7

Not a problem , you got yourself a great drive :clap:

It is still available here in Egypt for 30$ (retail) but I already have 1640 , Pio 111L , LiteOn 20A1P and LG H42N in the way :bigsmile:


#8

Yo minaelromany-

The 1640 is a better drive-IMO-eh!


#9

I love my 1640 too!!! One of these days its gonna die and i’ll be real sad when that happens.


#10

The CompUSA rebadged 1640 is starting to reappear on the shelves if your looking for a spare to stash away. :slight_smile:

There are tons of DW1640 in the Manhattan,NY superstore CompUSA. They are not cheap though, I was there last week and they were 69.99USD. Maybe wait till a sale comes along cause they ship anywhere. :iagree:


#12

Which drives are these? The CompUSA branded drive with the DW1640 part number is listed at $49.99 online, is the drive in stock in the Manhattan store a different SKU?

Also, how does one order something from a specific store? I’d assumed if I order online that the drive would ship from whichever store had stock and was the closest, which in my case would be the Rochester store.

I grabbed a 1640 a few months back when ZZF had them briefly in stock, and am regretting not ordering more. I wouldn’t mind picking up a 1650/55 if I catch one in stock, but I really want one or two (or 10) spare 1640s to fall back on in the event that this one fails.

Edit: Apologies for going slightly off topic with this post. On a more relevant note, not only is the 1655 now out of stock, but the link now arrives at an open box DQ60. Newegg is taunting us!


#13

With the little use of my 1655 i think my 1640 burns better.


#14

That link opens to an OEM model, not retail. In addition it states it’s an OPEN BOX.


#15

Have you checked recently alan? The price has recently been lowered. :clap: CompUSA SKU 320105, are now listed at 49.99.

#16

Yeah i know, that’s because they sold out in like 30 minutes… :a :sad:


#17

Got mine over a year and a half ago at Microcenter, retail version for like 40 bucks out the door. I told myself back then to get another but…regret is a biatch!


#18

In addition to that, it’s a DQ60 :Z :Z :Z and not a DW1655. :stuck_out_tongue:


#19

I cant believe how much these drives go for on ebay, but if you really want one, this guy is selling two brand new DW1655 each for $72.00 + $9.00 Shipping:
