After reading several praises of this drive (see this post for an example) I had a look on eBay, and wouldn’t you know it, there are several Hong Kong/Chinese sellers offering supposedly new units. Is it possible these are genuine? The front bezels don’t seem to match the retail one shown here (missing the Blu-ray/HD-DVD logos), and I also notice some models have the “X” pattern of dents on the top, whereas others (such as this one) don’t. Yet in all cases the labels state the drive is a GGW-H20L.
Can anyone explain this disparity? Are these rebadged, fake, or just regional differences?
Thanks in advance.
