Re: DVD-RW Drives - prices

I noticed lately while shopping for a replacement optical drive that
there is a significant price difference between the lowest and most
expensive drives with the same general specs (OEM, SATA, 22x etc.).
Can anyone explain why the higher prices? Looking at the
manufacturers specs it difficult to see any great difference.

Never really noticed a big difference in the prices of DVDRW's. Unboxed
OEM ones are usually <=£20 and boxed ones are usually about £25
