best buy has a 12x4x32 smart and friendly burner on sale. i think its discontinued or something and i saw this on anandtech so i checked out the ones in san diego and took the last ones. apparently there are no more in california http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/frown.gif so if you guys can find these anywhere this would be a hot deal!! no pricematching, no coupon stuff!!

Just picked one up at the store by me here in Mission Viejo, CA. The beauty of it is, it was an open box item (but i looked inside and it was totally unused) and they were only charging $129.60 for it. This is gonna make me some cash :-)

Is it EIDE or SCSI?
06-09-2000, 12:32 AM
scsi and even comes with a cheap advansys scsi controller
Did Best Buy have enough stock?
I gotta buy one tomorrow.
Quick question, does scsi controller means scsi card that can be installed inside the computer for connection?
dam...my area is out to...maybe i take a nice drive tomorrow...hoping against all odd that one of you don't live where i live

I was at the Cerritos one today and there were none to be found. Did you have to ask for it or what? Either they were cleaned out/never had them/or had them in a special place(no, not THAT special place).
****All you Mutha'z stay away from the Cerritos Best Buy tomorrow!!!****

Guys don't bother for the one in Cerritos. My friend works at the Best Buy in Cerritos (less than a mile from my house) and it's gone! Bastards. Although he says the one in Lakewood has one in stock but not on the shelves. See ya there hehe http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif
Ço£o§§ü§ - yeah you can read into it...

How much is this burner? No one posted it except for shottime who got it at the opened box price.
06-09-2000, 12:16 PM

Well just to let you guys know, the West LA, Torrance, Hawthorne, and West Minster are all sold out. That should save some of you guys the time to call and find out.

3) fullerton, ca
4) mission viejo, ca
5) torrance, ca
6) westminster, ca
add on to the list as needed so fellow gotapexers dont have to rush out in dissappointment http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif
I called Fullerton, Lakewood, Cerritos, and Westminster today morning but they all were out of stock.
There is supposed to be one at the Mentor, Ohio store. They want $180 for it. I'm passing on it, since they want $30 more than other stores.

ive been hearing lots of problems about these burners. anyone else have any problems with them?
06-10-2000, 02:13 PM
dude I drove an hour to Murrieta to get the last one there, I called everyone, no store in Orange County has one
06-10-2000, 02:41 PM
Go to the West Covina store!!!!
Just got one yesterday.
06-11-2000, 10:31 PM
Guys get in on this one if you can. Many Best Buys don't even know that they are priced at $149.50. I bought one for a friend yesterday. Today we drove 100 miles to get me one. I couldn't resist the great price and ended up getting two of them.
06-12-2000, 09:16 AM
Man, I went to one Best Buy and called two more in Columbus O, and basically they just laughed at me and said they flew off the shelves within hours of the price drop.
My question is....how did anandtech find out about it so fast? Oh well.
06-12-2000, 09:42 AM
someone probably went to go buy one and just happen to notice the drop in price.
