i was wrong
the supermarket had SHW-160P6S, not SHM-165P6S.
as far as i can tell, SHW-160P6S is the only 6S drive sold in Israel.
i'll have to check with my contact at my favorite computer-stuff store if they can get the other models.
if not i may wait a bit see if they will get here in the near future.
or maybe hold off for the 18x/20x models ???
(too bad, i was thinking of getting one of these as a birthday present for myself)
BTW, the model number printed on the box said SHW-160P6S02C
what's this 02C stand for ?
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
