I was :eek: shocked to see boxes of the BENQ 1620 Pro on the shelf at our local Circuit City here in Hawaii. This is the first time I've seen it at a local retail store. The cost is $89.99 which is still expensive compared to Newegg.com.
boo $39.99 at newegg
i've been seeing retail 1620 Pros (internal & external) at CC here in NY/NYC for a few months now...89.99 is for the internal...i'm sure the external is a little more...they don't seem to advertise/list them on the website at all though so YMMV...
:iagree: I haven't seen it on their website as well.
Computergeeks.com was selling them at $39.99 way before Newegg.com decided to drop their price.
Those I/O Magic drives are also BenQ drive at CC in Hawaii, at a lower price. But still, cant compare to the EGG
