It’s a Plextor for goodness sake:

I’m not sure how our host feels about posting deals. It’s understandable if this isn’t the intent of the forum and I shall cease. I did search Macsales and couldn’t find Plextor.

thats a pretty sweet deal! Tips and deals indicates well you can post tips and deals. OWC Larry appeared to do this to help the community which was set up at DM and thats what was posted, good deals. I think it will stay the same. If you see a deal worth the time, post it.

"It’s a Plextor for goodness sake:"

I'm not trying to 'p' on your parade Mr. Duck, but:
After reading the 6 pages @ FW, noticed that several posters reported this burner is actually "a rebadged BenQ DW1640". Not a genuine Plextor OEM unit. Very slim reporting on this drive from XLR8 & firmware flashing appears to be iffy.

Also appears that not too many shoppers have gotten the free 20-pack of DL discs. BB has invoked their "ad misprint" escape clause. Then there are the TWO rebates involved.

One might consider the $44 DVR-110x or $39 ND-3550A (shipped price) from newegg [www.newegg.com] and [www.newegg.com]

Both have bonus deals of free media, but you pay a little extra shipping fee. No rebates or sales tax to boot!
OWC also has the DVR-110x in a bundle $60+shpg [eshop.macsales.com]
If that was a genuine Plextor, $51AR would be a very good deal.

You forgot to mention the 20 pack DL Media that was included.
