Lite-On 16x/40x DVD-reader differences?

How many different models of a 16x/40x readers are there from Lite-On?
I am going to buy one tomorrow and got confused.
So far I have seen:
Lite-On DVD 16X/48Xcd Bulk LTD-165H 02VHC
XJ-HD166 RETAIL
XJ-HD166S BULK
and this one which is the cheapest, but doesn’t show the model:
http://www.webhallen.com/prod.php?id=20372

Are they all the same? I couldn’t find any info on lite-on’s homepage either.

Is there a difference between XJ-HD166 with and without the “S”?
I know the difference between bulk and retail. But www.webhallen.com has the retail for cheaper than the bulk?

Please help me get the best Lite-On.

There’s also the Sony DDU-1612, which is an OEM 166S. I just bought it since it was a bit cheaper, and flashfixed it to a 166S.

Thanks!
Still, what is the difference between the 166 and 166S?
There is one place that has the XJ-HD166 RETAIL. But they are out of XJ-HD166S. They are supposed to ge the XJ-HD166S in ten days.

There is no difference.

Nice I just bought my XJ-HD166S. They didn’t know which drive it was in the store. They opened the package for me and I could have a peek to see that it is a 166S.
So now I joined the club :cool:

Thanks for all the help!
