Now on sale for $26.99 + S&H at Directron http://www.directron.com/ihas32408.html . As the first Lite-on in a while to manage very decent Dl burning as well as SL, ripping, and scanning, not a bad choice for any looking for a good all-in-one drive. Certainly consider mine a keeper :). Replacing an aging LG in one of my sisters’ computer with this one for that reason.
If ordering, make a point of telling them in the “comments” section that you require the 08/09 model, and will not accept an iHAS324-98 as a replacement ;). Never had that kind of trouble w/ Directron, but it’s always wise to play it safe and avoid hassles :).
