Hi !

Benq is selling some wonderful new drives on the Asian Market.
dw2000/dw2010/dw200s

Unfortunately these drives seem to be not available in Europe (where i live)

Does anybody know of any online-shop selling these drives and shipping internationaly ?

Please advise.

Thanks,
Karl

Benq has been out of the drive bussiness for a while now. Those drives are a few years old.

First of all, those aren’t real BenQ drives. Those are Lite-On drives that merely bear the BenQ name. They were produced after Lite-On bought BenQ. Real BenQ drives are models DW1600, DW1620, DW1625, DW1640, DW1650, and DW1655. Any other model number next to the BenQ name means it is a rebadged drive from another manufacturer.

Second, none of those drives is being sold outside of Asia anymore. If you find any, they will be older stock that just happens to still be sitting around in someone’s inventory.

Your best best, if you’re attached to the DW2000/2010 models, is to forget about the BenQ label and just buy a Lite-On drive, since that is what those are anyway. You can even cross-flash certain Lite-On drives with the DW2000/2010 firmware, so as to make it look and act on your computer as if you had bought those drives originally.

Now, if you want a real BenQ drive, then join us in this discussion:
