:eek: rebadge or original?? Well, LS means it’s a rebadge I guess, but who knows…

This duo is a pretty smart step features/marketing wise, isn’t it.


#3

Most likely rebadges.

My guess would be we’re looking at LGs GGC-H20L and GGW-H20L.


#4

Ho-hum, more rebadges. Wake me up when (if?) a real Plextor gets released.


#5

I Completely agree with hwp, LG GGC-H20L has the same specs and the PX-B300SA, and the LG GGW-H20L matches the PX-B920SA.


#6

Price will be very high with Plextor logo :iagree:


#7

I have to wonder whether this is really just an LG GGWH20L rebadge, if it is the price point should be cheaper not more expensive.:iagree:


#8

Yeah, that’s true. The LG theory makes sense. Unfortunately. :sad:

I guess eject and LED positions match. Although, it looks different!

But: Note that the PX-B300A ships with no PTP LE at all. LG drives never scan at all. So maybe no inclusion of PTP LE this time, because it’s an LG indeed. Can’t wait to know for sure.

Since these drives are HD it seems best to continue any discussion on them in the proper forum, which would be the “Blu-ray and HD DVD Hardware, Software and Blank Media” one. I therefore put a copy of this thread into that forum:

Please continue any discussion there and consider this thread as an announcement only.
