If anyone is looking... the Pacific Digital that I just purchased at Staples is a BenQ 1620. Look for U-30265-RV2 beneath the bar code. A thread over at Fat Wallet confirms that number. Sonic software is included in the box.
Apply the coupon noted by rcgreen and the cost is about $50.00 after rebate and tax. Thanks rcgreen.

It worked for me. The coupon gets applied before the $30 rebate. And even if it wasn't you could add a $20 media spindle. Well I think the coupon expired now but maybe there's another one coming. Only problem with the drive is it only came with a 40-wire IDE cable instead of 80 wire.
Came with G7C9 firmware. I'm just starting to play with it.
