What's the "B" in 716SB stand for?

Hi everyone,

My local mom n’ pop computer shop is selling the 716SB; does the “B” mean anything? I believe they’re OEM packaging since they list it as “bulk” – but I don’t think Plextor would label a non-retail boxed drive as “bulk”…

Can anyone shed some light on this? Is there any difference between SA and SB? Since 716 is getting harder to find, I want to get at least an extra one to tie me over until Plextor decides to release a new burner that has cache that’s greater than 2MB…

Thanks in advance,

PugDaddy

AFAIK there is no “SB” designation. So if this is a regular SATA drive sold in bulk “b” could mean ‘black’ because bulk drives only come with one bezel installed and you have to decide if you want the grey or black version.

Thanks for the answer hwp! I forgot about the different bezels that came with the retail box…

Does anyone know which TLA range is a good number to buy? I’d have to pay more buying it locally, but I may be able to “harrass” the owners to find me a good drive… :slight_smile:
