[QUOTE=gwent;2202198]That’s too bad. I just found it on Amazon.co.uk, but shipping it would be expensive. So what can somebody recommend that would have good performance like the Optiarc that I could get in the US, or from Newegg?
Edit: Actually, it looks like Amazon.co.uk won’t even ship this to the US. I finally settle on a good SATA drive and it’s unavailable.[/QUOTE]
Please pay attention. In the United States, the drive you want to buy is the Optiarc AD-7200S or AD-7201S. They are the same drive as the AD-7203S. The write quality and everything else is THE SAME. The AD-7200S is the regular SATA drive, the AD-7201S has LightScribe, and the AD-7203S has LabelFlash, a technology only licensed in Europe.
Once again, you need to look for the AD-7200S or AD-7201S. Those are the drives sold here in the states.
