A gentleman on cdfreaks forum, who resides in Asia, was discussing this model. I was wondering if anyone on this forum knew anything about it?
If it would be released here in the US. Feature set? Lightscribe? USB and Firewire?
Any information would be appreciated. [-o< =P~

It's been my experience, that we don't always get what the rest of the world gets, thus the numerous questions.

oh, i see.
well, i'm think that the drive itself is the same the world over...doesn't seem logical that they would make different versions of the drive for different parts of the world. just maybe different packaging etc.
since this is an external drive, i'm sure that the entire drive (including the enclosure and it's electronics) is the same as that described by Kennyshin @ cdfreaks.

The GSA-5160D and GSA-5120D were both available here. I don't see why the GSA-5163D wouldn't eventually too.
