as i browse bestbuy this saturday night, i found http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?CategoryID=cat01041&id=1063225035182&skuId=6029816&type=product&ref=10&loc=01 $79.99 after $40 rebates.

i couldnt find any reviews or information on this drive. does anyone have experience with this drive? i’m new to dvd burning, so i’m not sure what i should be looking for. i suppose the main questions would be: is this a rebadged drive? and if rebadged, is it a good or bad rebadge? is it a good deal?

i would appreciate any information you have.

It seems that this drive is a rebranded Optorite.
The Optorite is a decent drive from what I hear… Not the best though.
The cool thing is that it supports HD-burn, which is an interesting feature IMO.
Check out the CDRInfo article.
