Doing a search on Pricewatch.com lists a few veendors as having this drive as of the 20th of October. I'm not 100% positive its REALLY out, but the sites list it as being out. The Ricoh DVD+RW is also available now I think if anyone is interested.
I have seen these units on sale at Compusa and Bestbuy for $599. Compusa must have had at least 20 or 30 of them on the shelf. At all the different stores I went to, I NEVER seen a DVD+RW disk for sale.
They were charging $15.99 per blank!!!! If these drives supported DVD-R as well as DVD+RW then it might not be so bad, but because you only have the one format, it will be very expensive. . . . . OH, and i just noticed they are out of stock on them.
