I've been getting stuff from Newegg for 4 years, and have never had a single problem. They are always at the top of online retailer ratings. [/B]
$69.99 this week after rebate at OfficeMax (ends tomorrow). They have Pacific Digital, Mad Dog, and Micro Advantage on sale this week, the MIR is $50. I got the Mad Dog because all the Pacific Digitals they had were Lite On (42* serial I think) (and of course, the Micro Advantage is BTC). So far, I haven't heard of anything other than 2500a in the Mad Dog package (Dominator 6-in-1), they give a 2 year warranty, and mine has a black faceplate (not sure if all the Mad Dog drives are black or not, but the box says on the back that it's black). Includes the Nero 6 express suite (haven't opened the sleeve yet, it has a serial on it so I'm hoping it's not brand locked like the Nero 5 CDs I got with my Lite On CDRWs). If you get it at Office Max, note that the terms of the rebate say you have to register the product online.
