Who wants to bet the marketing guy at Staples is sleeping with a female sales rep at Memorex? =D>

Is that Memorex 16x Dual Format Double Layer DVD Writer still based on a Lite-On model? I know Memorex puts together good retail packages, but if it's still based on a Lite-On drive, isn't $65 a little pricey? I mean, heck, I recently bought a BenQ DW1640 and NEC ND-3540A for under $40 apiece.
No, I like women.

I don't think Memorex ever switched back from Lite-On... probably because the drives are cheaper. :roll:

Like Sony and Plextor, they're charging a premium.. partly for the brand name, but also for better support and documentation.
