Lite-On DH-20A3P and DH-20A3S - $15 After Rebate - Fry's Electronics - Monday, 09/01/08

On Monday, Fry’s Electronics will be having a Labor Day sale. Two of the items on sale that day will be 20x Emprex drives, one PATA and the other SATA. Each will be $15 after a $15 rebate ($30 initial price).

The 20x Emprex drives are made by Optiarc. The PATA drive is an Optiarc AD-7190A, while the SATA drive is an Optiarc AD-7190S. As most of you know, the 7190 Optiarc drives are really 20A3 Lite-On drives.

So, once again:

Emprex 20x PATA (5473239) = Optiarc AD-7190A = Lite-On DH-20A3P

Emprex 20x SATA (5579820) = Optiarc AD-7190S = Lite-On DH-20A3S

And before you ask, I have no idea whether this deal will be available online with free shipping. As of right now, it’s an in-store deal only.

The Fry’s ad had a 3rd PLU (#5691321) which turns to be a Sony/Nec Optiarc AD-7200S. Same deal as the 2 rebadged Lite-On drives. Got one from the San Diego Fry’s.

The only drive available online is the 20A3P. It is a very good ide drive with a bunch of test firmware that really makes this drive shine.

Interesting. That SKU isn’t showing up online. I wonder if it was available outside of San Diego.
