Yeah, I posted something about the drive back in June. I never did find out if it was a Pioneer.

My gut feeling says that this isn't a Pioneer drive. You can kinda see the top of the drive in the link below. It sorta looks like an NEC or Sony NEC Optiarc drive.

They even have an SATA version:

I dunno. It was just a guess. For all we know, this is ASUS's own design. It wouldn't be the first time they did their own thing.
