zevia: No the guys name isnt megaXXXX. I saw there stuff on there and almost went with them but I went for another guy.
I went through this guy and thought I was getting a 3520 until I received it today. Im not going to complain cause its a newer drive. As soon as I installed it it said 3540 and then when I took apart the external case as recommended by you guys the sticker said 3540A.
I can post the guys ebay store name as long as it is o.k to do here on the forums!!. I will give you guys a hint though he is one of the major guys on ebay selling DVD-RW's with dual layer. (toshiba, NEC and I think a few pioneer) After I sent my payment I saw his name and it is definately of a asian background so that might give us a hint of where he gets his stuff...
Now you guys got me wondering. I thought maybe he goofed because the external case hides all the info and he shipped it to me in the external case box.
eric93se: Did you get one too fromt eh same guy? Thats the same price I payed for mine?
