Is the 112 available anywhere in the US? All I can find are the 112D's.
AFAIK, the 112 NO D is not available here in the US. Your only option if you choose to, is to get the 112D and then flash it to 112 NO D, which of course will void your warranty, but then you basically have a 112 NO D drive.
I just bought a 212D drive... When a flash that supports bitsetting and DVD-RAM writing comes out... I don't care about a warranty on a $36.00 U.S. drive... I do get some outstanding burns from this drive right now.
