So is this a new sub brand from Lite-On? Is it just for Office Max?
Digital Max is part of the Lite-On-It Corporation. My rebate is coming directly from Lite-On. The drive is a 1635S in the box. Great buy for $15.00 with discounts/rebates applies...
Actually there are two different drives under that name:
Digital Max DRW-3S163 = Lite On SOHW 1633S (older).
Digital Max DRW-5S163 = Lite On SHW-1635S (newer).
I bought the DRW-5S163 ($25 AMIR) and flashed it to a SHW-1635S.
I also bought a SHW-1635S from Newegg when they had them.
