I know a number of you have been waiting for LG's next drive. According to AV Watch, Buffalo (Japanese company) has started shipping a drive based on the GSA-4167B:

DVD+R DL: 6x
DVD-R DL: 4x
DVD-ROM (single): 16x
DVD-ROM (dual): 8x
DVD±R DL: 8x
Buffalo also includes a Serial ATA adapter with the internal model. Kinda nice.. I wish US manufacturers would do that.
Now the big question is when will LG ship their OEM and retail drives?
