I have a huge credit card bill this month to pay off and I've already sold basically everything, so now I'm reduced to sacrificing the things I want to keep! This drive has treated me very well, and I'm betting you can't even find one online anymore. Regardless, it is STILL the fastest slot-loading DVD-ROM to date. The main reasons I went with this drive was for the unique slot-loading feature, the digital SPDIF output support, and the speed. The only other company to offer a slot-loading drive is Pioneer, and the AOpen is known to consistently beat the Pioneer in benchmarks, as well as being a quieter drive. This is the perfect DVD-ROM drive for HTPCs! I paid around $90-105 for it, I'm asking for only $40 + shipping.
