:frowning: I just checked the order status on that 1655 drive from Geeks.com and my order was cancelled!!! WTF!!! :a :a I have yet to receive any email notifying me they could not fill my order. Anyone else have their orders cancelled? I wonder if they couldn’t fill the orders. Oh! well I guess I’ll order a brand spanking new Pioneer or LG drive for my friends computer.

The obvious question is “When did you order?”


#3

Way before they ran out of the drive which was last night. I placed my order on Friday evening. :wink:


#4

I also ordered Friday evening @ 6:00 PST — I just checked my order. It’s showing as shipped, and I have a FedEx tracking number. I got the Beige 1655 LS model.

I’ll report back when it arrives (if it does!)

Hope they will refund your money, Addict!

I have had similar things happen at other vendors (like Zip Zoom Fly). They list things as being in stock when you order, but they are not. :frowning: Argh.


#5

Sorry to hear DVD_ADDICT. I ordered mine about the same time and should be getting it March 1st so Fedex says.


#6

Yeah, that sucks. Placed my order Friday afternoon and it’s shipped for delivery 3/2.


#7

Thanks for the replies. I just called Geeks.com and was told they ran out of stock. :frowning: Unbelieveable since they had the 1655 on their website till Sunday afternoon. :a I’m not happy with the customer service from Geeks.com since I got no email notification that my order was cancelled. Other online retailers send a email notification if the item becomes out of stock or if order is being cancelled.

I’ll be ordering a Pioneer 111 or LG H42 for my friends computer from Newegg instead. :wink:


#8

Well, I ordered the black one on Friday afternoon but the status still shows “processing order”, I guess I won’t get it either then :frowning:


#9

Is this a good burner. I been looking into getting a new one.


#10

It is a good burner, agruably the best, but it has end of lifed a long time ago and we basically dance and celebrate whenever it becomes available for sale again.


#11

:iagree:


#12

@Addict -Sorry, but Pio 111D is out of stock at the Egg, unless you want open box…


#13

It’s okay I can just order a Pioneer 112 or buy a retail one from Best Buy.
Or I can order a LG H42N drive as well. :slight_smile:


#14

The Pio 112 is looking quite good from the results in the Pio forum… mine will be here Thursday.


#15

Guess the party’s over and everyone of us are moving on with life, some goes Liteon, some LG, some pioneer, and some shooting for blu-rays :sad:


#16

Not as good as a 1640…i got 2 working 1640’s still, tried a 1650 once, it sucks as bad as my new Liteon 201AP :stuck_out_tongue:


#17

:bigsmile: Yes the drive performs well. I bought one from Best Buy 2 weeks ago with a 12% coupon off.


#18

Hell I’m still smiling with my 1620 that still kicks A$$. I bet Pinto’s does too! Along with an decent 1650. But the 20 is still better than the 50.


#19

1650/1655 suffered from being the last of the benq drives using philips chipset. the hardware isn’t worse than the 1620. the firmware could use some work. sadly… :sad:


#20

Oops, I was being paranoid. Just got an email from computer geeks saying that my Benq 1655s are shipped. Talk about turning from desperately wanting to buy it to overstocked with it :iagree:
